Shia LaBeouf Mugshot from Previous Arrest

Shia LaBeouf was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of drunk driving, after he tried to make a left turn at an intersection of West Hollywood and instead got into a car crash when he ran into another vehicle. LaBeouf rolled the truck he was driving, injuring his hand and knee in the process.

LaBeouf, star of this summer’s INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL and last summer’s blockbsuster TRANSFORMERS, was booked for a misdemeanor DUI and then released for medical attention for his injuries. A female passenger of LaBeouf’s and the driver of the vehicle he hit were not seriously hurt. Neither their identities or if they have a Los Angeles DUI lawyer for representation are known at this time.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and his publicists did not return immediate calls made by The Associated Press.

LaBeouf was previously arrested in Chicago last year after a drunken confrontation with a Walgreens guard and was charged with criminal trespass. The charges were later dropped.

Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page was arrested on July 11th for cocaine possession.  Cops saw a suspicious vehicle outside an apartment in New York City, and while they investigated observed a man and a woman inside an apartment with a powder substance and an “unknown white capsule”.  A field test came back positive as cocaine.

Page, and the woman Stephanie Ford, were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, while Ford was also charged with possession of pot.

Both were released on a $10,000 bail.

The band has since pulled out of playing at the Disney Music Block Party, while their manager has said through the band’s website that the “members of the band completely support Steven Page, but we don’t want to put Disney in an awkward position before issues involving Steven’s arrest are resolved.”

Kim Kardashian’s Sister Khloe Is Going to Jail

Kim and Khloe Kardashian

Way back on March 4th 2007 Khloe Kardashian, the least famous of the Kardashian brats clan, got a DUI and was sentenced to 36 months probation. Khloe, who had a blood alcohol level of .13 ( the legal limit is .08 ) at the time she was pulled over, was also sentenced to pick up trash with Cal Trans.

This month, it has come to light that she has not been complying with the Cal Trans requirements or the alcohol education program, and the judge overseeing her case has ordered she serve 30 days in jail. On Friday, July 18th, she will surrender herself (and thus miss the opening weekend of The Dark Knight) to begin serving her term.

Never one to miss a spotlight opportunity, Kim noted on her blog “I urge people to learn from the mistakes of others. Please drink responsibly and it’s never acceptable to drink and drive!”

Matt Jones, receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested in Arkansas this morning, July 10th, for possession of a controlled substance.

When police officers approached the vehicle he was sitting in and saw him chopping up and scraping together a white powder with a credit card, he was ordered out of the car. After disregarding the initial order, police drew guns on Jones and at that time Jones complied. A police report also noted Jones stated that the substance was cocaine (a test later proved the statement correct).

Jones was booked into the Washington County Detention Center, along with two other men that were in the car. It is unclear at this time why Jones, who was quarterback for the University of Alabama, is in the state.
