There's not usually a lot of celebrity news emanating out of North Dakota, but that's where the latest on Shia LaBeouf is coming from. The Transformers actor-turned-part-time performance artist has returned (for now) to acting, but things didn't go so well on the set of his latest film. While shooting a scene yesterday morning, LaBeouf performed one of his own stunts, which involved him putting his head through a glass window, TMZ reports. The result: 20 stitches and 13 head staples. "Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, American Honey," his rep tells TMZ. "As protocol, production sought out medical attention, and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head."

The actor is a veteran of getting hurt, per US Weekly. He crushed his left hand in a 2008 car crash, as well as suffered injuries while shooting Transformers, per the magazine. He explained one of those injuries to Entertainment Weekly back in 2009, noting he "basically stuck a f---ing sharp object through my eyelid." LaBeouf also cut his index finger in yesterday's accident, People notes, but that injury, along with his head wounds, hasn't seemed to squash his thespian activities: His rep says he's due back on the set today. (Shia's had a pretty rough year.)
