The Fugitive

TMZ is reporting that Shia LaBeouf is a wanted man. Apparently, Shia -- who is no stranger to having run-ins with the law (how could we ever forget his little incident at a Chicago Walgreens drug store last year) -- was cited for unlawful smoking by the city of Burbank, CA last month and failed to show up to answer the charge in court Tuesday. The unamused judge issued a bench warrant for the lad's arrest ... as it stands right now, Shia LaBeouf is a wanted fugitive on the lam:

LaBeouf received a ticket February 18 in Burbank for unlawful smoking, a misdemeanor. He was supposed to appear in court at 8:30 AM, but neither he nor a lawyer showed -- so a $1,000 bench warrant was issued for Shia's arrest. Shia was allegedly smoking on the sidewalk outside a shop called Skyblupink, a gift shop, when cops cited him.

On the plus side, Shia isn't wanted by the cops for drunk driving or any such clich├ęd unlawful celeb bullshizz behavior like that ... and I do believe that he is the only famous person of note to risk arrest due to "unlawful smoking" ... that's kinda pimp, right? I'd be surprised if anything will ever come of this ... tho, I wouldn't mind another one of those fun mug shots that we never seem to get enough of 'round these here parts. [Source]
