Deputies have determined that Shia LaBeouf is not at fault for an accident he suffered Sunday morning even though he was obviously drunk during the time of his arrest. A spokesman for the Sheriff’s department claims another driver ran a red light and hit LaBeouf’s truck.
LaBeouf made a left turn and collided with an oncoming car about 2:30 a.m. The actor’s Ford F-150 pickup truck rolled over in the crash.
LaBeouf injured his left hand and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for surgery, according to Sgt. Kristin Aloma of the sheriff’s West Hollywood station. LaBeouf’s passenger and the other driver, both women, were treated for minor injuries and released from Cedars.
LaBeouf, 22, “was exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication,” Aloma said. He was cited for misdemeanor drunken driving instead of felony drunken driving because the injuries suffered by the others were minor, she explained.
Maybe if the other driver was impaired like Shia he wouldn’t have run that red light. If I was Shia, I’d release a statement informing everyone of that fact. Have it read, “Yea, I was driving drunk. But some sober jerk hit my truck and flipped me over. If it wasn’t for him, no one would know I was intoxicated. I’m awesome.” I think that would make him look very endearing.
