July 2, 2014 — -- A rep for Shia LaBeouf today denied Tuesday reports that the actor had checked into rehab after his arrest last week, but said the "Transformers" actor is getting help.
"Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction," his rep, Melissa Kates, told ABC News via a statement. "He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery."
LaBeouf, 28, was arrested last Thursday night for causing a disturbance at the Broadway show "Cabaret," when he stood up in the middle of the show and started yelling at the actors onstage.
He yelled at security and then threatened police, authorities say.
He was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespassing. An additional count of harassment was later added, police said.
This comes after a string of head-scratching incidents, including a bar fight in London in January, and alleged plagiarism of Daniel Clowes' work that LaBeouf later claimed was performance art.
