Shia LaBeouf arrested for DUI

Transformers star Shia LaBeouf was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after a car accident in which he was injured early Sunday.

At about 3am, the car LaBeouf was driving collided with another vehicle in Hollywood, California. He suffered injuries to his head, knee and hand and was hospitalized.

A passenger in the car with LaBeouf suffered minor injuries.

The collision occurred when Shia LaBeouf made a left turn in the path of another vehicle. LaBeouf's car reportedly rolled over after striking the car. He was arrested and booked for misdemeanor DUI and released.

Shia's injuries could have a major impact on the shooting schedule of the new Transformers movie. It has been reported that LaBeouf will need a month to recover from his injuries so Michael Bay will have to shoot scenes that don't include LaBeouf until he returns.

Reports reveal that although Shia LaBeouf was driving drunk, the accident was not his fault. The driver of the other vehicle ran a red light which caused the accident. Shia has been released from the hospital following extensive hand surgery and will not return to the set of Transformers 2 for another month.

Michael Bay Tight Lipped About Transformers 2

In a recent phone interview with Entertainment Weekly, Michael Bay, director of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, wasn't giving very many details about the upcoming flick. The interview took place during a break on the set of the sequel which was described as a "remote air force base" at an "undisclosed location".

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY asked, "What can you tell us about Transformers 2? Or, better yet, what will you tell us?"

MICHAEL BAY said, "When we were writing the script, I said to the writers, 'I hate sequels that try to make it to the third movie. Pretend like we’re never having a third movie, so let’s go for broke on the second one. I hate those cliffhangers! Let’s just make this movie stand on its own.' I really feel this movie is not a forced sequel. I think the script is really good, and I think it’s got a lot of new stuff in it. There are a lot of rumors out there, but we’ve released a lot of fake stuff. We’ve done a really good job of keeping things secret."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY asked, "Can you give us a hint of something that is true then?"

Bay just laughs and says, "No."

"C'mon, anything?"

Bay responds, "There are some great, new robots that are really inventive."

Bay goes on to talk about his upcoming remake of Friday the 13th and his alleged rejection of the Dark Knight script.
