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.
