Shia LaBeouf receives treatment for alcohol addiction

Shia LaBeouf, pictured at left with a Legal Aid lawyer on June 27, is receiving treatment for alcohol addiction. The 28-year-old actor has voluntarily opted to seek professional help for his issues with booze following his arrest in New York City last week. A representative for the star told Access Hollywood: ''Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction. 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.'' The Transformers star was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing last Thursday after he allegedly began yelling offensive language and slapping people's bottoms midway through a Broadway performance of Cabaret at Studio 54. He was also spotted arguing with a homeless man over a baseball cap on the streets of the city a few hours before his arrest. A source said the actor - who was wearing a bright blue T-shirt with a huge hole on the shoulder - was acting as if he knew the man, but seemed ''whacked out'' and was making no sense. Shia is expected to appear in court in relation to his New York charges on July 24.

    Shia LaBeouf got his lawyer from Legal Aid?! I seem to recall him making a movie in which he played an alcoholic a few years back and he said he started drinking to give a more convincing performance. Seems to have worked.

    He needs rehab. And a real lawyer. Legal Aid is the way to go if you want to lose your case.

    Why would he even be allowed a lawyer through legal aid given his financial resources?
