Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested and later released in New York City after getting into an altercation with an onlooker at an anti-Trump protest. "Shia took umbrage with this individual for whatever reason, pulling the scarf that was around his head and neck area and in the course of doing so, scratched his face", an NYPD spokesperson told ET. And while LaBeouf was there in the early hours of Thursday, something went down to cause him to allegedly get into an altercation with a 25-year-old that led to his arrest. "That's bulls-t, bro, it's not okay". LaBeouf is seen pushing the man, who had his arm around the actor at the time, away. One person says, "We believe in you Shia". According to the #HeWillNotDivideUs live-stream, he has yet to return to the protest, though. "Everyone's invited. 'I'm just saying, 'Be nice to each other'".

News of LaBeouf's release was broken by the exhibit's Twitter Thursday morning at 4:37 a.m.

In a feed captured over the weekend, a man walks up to the camera while LaBeouf and other anti-Trump protesters are chanting and tries to deliver his own message.

Actor Jaden Smith, 18, Will Smith's son, and actress Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith's wife, participated in LaBeouf's protest on Inauguration Day, according to the Daily Mail.

A website for the project reads, "Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency", the project website reads. The actor and performance artist was charged with misdemeanor assault.

In an earlier video, a man was seen approaching LaBeouf and embracing him before strangely shouting, "Hitler did nothing wrong".

Since this story is still developing, there's a good chance more details of LaBeouf's arrest will come to light soon.

Then, LaBeouf steps back into view with his hands behind his back.
