According to Vancouver radio station News1130, LaBeouf and his assaulter began arguing inside Cinema Public House just after 12:30 a.m.
“It is not clear what provoked the attack, but Shia threw the other man to the ground inside the bar,” according to the local report. “Security personal then took both parties outside, where the … man ripped off his shirt and started punching Shia.”
Knocked to the ground with at least three punches, the 25-year-old was helped by bystanders.
“The guy had to tell him something like ‘calm down or I’ll have to lay you out’. Then Shia just put his hands up and gave up,” an onlooker told Radar Online.
A spokesman for the bar told TMZ that no employee had noticed the scuffle that raged outside. However, he confirmed that LaBeouf was a regular customer since he’s currently shooting the film The Company You Keep in the Canadian city.
This isn’t the first time Shia is caught in the middle of a fight. The actor was handcuffed after an altercation in a bar in California earlier this year.
