Shia LaBeouf has been arrested after allegedly getting into an altercation with another man outside a New York City museum. Police say LaBeouf pulled the scarf of an unidentified 25-year-old man early Thursday morning outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, scratching his face in the process, the AP reports. 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. On Sunday, he confronted a white supremacist during the livestream project. (More Shia LaBeouf stories.)
