SHIA LABEOUF was arrested for drink driving and rushed to hospital for extensive surgery after a horror car crash yesterday morning.

Shia was driving through Hollywood with a female passenger at 3am when he careered into another car and rolled his vehicle onto its roof.

The driver of the car he struck and Shia’s passenger escaped serious injury, but the actor was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment to head, hand and knee wounds.

Shia took a month off from shooting his new movie Transformers 2.

His rep MELISSA KATES said in a statement:

“Attorneys for Mr LaBeouf confirm that an automobile accident involving an additional party occurred early morning in Los Angeles on July 27, 2008.”

“Shia is currently recovering from extensive hand surgery with plans to return to work on the set of Transformers 2 within one month.”

“No further comment will be issued at this time.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s SERGEANT S. WOLF added: “It was immediately apparent to officers responding on the scene that LaBeouf was intoxicated and he was subsequently placed under arrest.”
