LaBeouf, 28, has voluntarily sought outpatient care for
addiction, Melissa Kates, the former "Transformers" star's
spokeswoman, said in a statement.
The actor was arraigned last week on charges of disorderly
conduct and harassment after police said he interrupted a
performance of "Cabaret" inside New York's Studio 54, used
obscene language and became belligerent when asked to leave.
"He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a
larger health problem and he has taken the first of many
necessary steps towards recovery," Kates said.
A disheveled-looking LaBeouf did not enter a plea to the New
York charges, which are all misdemeanors or violations so the
former Disney child star would face minimal or no jail time if
LaBeouf's promising career has been upended recently by bizarre
behavior that has included attending a red carpet premiere at
February's Berlin International Film Festival wearing a brown
paper bag saying "I Am Not Famous Anymore."
