He was charged with obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness (though the final charge was later dropped), and ordered to pay fines, complete hours of community service, enroll in anger management courses, attend ten weeks of rehab and spend a year on probation.
LaBeouf - who Wednesday girlfriend Mia Goth in 2016 - also compared his public outbursts to those of tennis legend John McEnroe, whom he's set to portray in the upcoming movie "Borg vs. McEnroe". But the actor says the similarities stop there.
"McEnroe was a master at his rage". "My public outbursts are failures. They're not strategic. They're a struggling m--f-- showing his ass in front of the world". I was still on my 'Look how fast they released the videos! "Most of my life", he added.

When Kanye went to LaBeouf's house to discuss possible art collaborations, he asked if he could have some of his clothes for a pop-up shop.
West did exactly that. "When I brought her backstage, he was a f-ing sweetheart to her". And it just felt fair. "Take everything you want'".
"He took all my fucking clothes", Shia said. "Me and him haven't really been in contact since he blew up onstage and, you know, s- on me".
Back in 2016, during the random concert rants that led up to his hospitalization, Kanye referenced LaBeouf at his Sacramento show. He froze, he said, and that has lived with him ever since, making him quick to get aggressive.
Still, LaBeouf says he's since reached out to the fellow controversial star.More news: Trump says 'disagreed on things' with Rex Tillerson
