Shia LaBeouf Arrested in Drunk Driving Incident

LOS ANGELES, CA (KAIT) - Early Sunday morning actor Shia LaBeouf was involved in an auto collision in Los Angeles that has resulted in his arrest for drunk driving.

The 22 year old star was rushed to the emergency room where he underwent extensive surgery on his hand. The vehicle's damage was so severe, police arrived to find it upside down. The accident was ruled in fault of the other driver.

Injuries sustained will delay his involvement in production of Transformers 2 by at least one month.

In response to this incident, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) issued an Open Request to LaBeouf asking that he install ignition interlock devices in all vehicles registered in his name. The device is a breath test system linked to a vehicles ignition. They also urge him to take this opportunity to educate his fans about these life saving devices.
