Shia LaBeouf arrested at his anti-Trump livestream

NEW YORK -- Actor Shia LaBeouf has been arrested after allegedly getting into an altercation with another man at his livestream near the Museum of Moving Image in the New York City borough of Queens.

Police say LaBeouf pulled the scarf of an unidentified 25-year-old man early Thursday morning, scratching his face in the process. Police say he also pushed the man, who refused medical attention.

LaBeouf faces a misdemeanor assault charge. It’s unclear if he has an attorney who can comment.

LaBeouf has spent the first few days of Donald Trump’s presidency chanting, “He will not divide us,” in front of a live camera outside the museum. The livestream is for a participatory public art project LaBeouf and two collaborators intend to have running for the next four years.

Police told CBS News the fight wasn’t pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump fight -- everyone there was apparently anti-Trump.
