Movie star Shia LaBeouf has reportedly checked in to rehab just days after he was arrested in New York City following an outburst in a Broadway theatre.

The “Transformers” star was charged with disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and harassment on Thursday after disrupting stage show “Cabaret.”

According to theater goers, LaBeouf was spotted smoking in the theatre and began shouting obscenities when security staff asked him to leave the venue.

On Monday, multiple reports suggest the actor checked in to a private facility in Los Angeles for undisclosed treatment.

LaBeouf’s erratic behavior has hit the headlines a number of times this year – he wore a paper bag emblazoned with the words ‘I am not famous anymore’ over his head at the Berlin Film Festival in Germany and staged a bizarre performance art showcase in Hollywood, where fans, critics and reporters were all invited to hurl abuse at him in a gallery.

He also made the news for brawl in a London pub.
