Queens D.A. to drop assault charge against Shia LaBeouf

The actor was arrested in New York City in January.

ABC News confirmed Friday that the Queens district attorney has decided to dismiss the assault charge against the actor that stemmed from an incident two months ago in Astoria.

A rep for the D.A.'s office said next week there will be a “pre-arraignment dismissal” during which prosecutors will tell the court that there is not enough evidence to proceed with the case.

LaBeouf does not have to appear in court for the hearing.

A livestream video captured LaBeouf being apprehended. The livestream went up the morning of the inauguration, a participatory public art project LaBeouf and two collaborators intended to have running 24 hours a day for the duration of the Trump administration. After LaBeouf’s arrest the museum shut down the project.
