Shia LaBeouf -- Wanted Man!

3/18/2008 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Shia LaBeouf.

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.

We're waiting to hear back from Shia's rep.

Downtown Burbank. Smoking is prohibited on all non-enclosed sidewalks, paseos, and other pedestrian areas in Downtown Burbank accessible to the general public, except within smoking areas designated pursuant to Section 17-705.

Why would he or his attorney bother to show up in court? That's for us regular people. Celebs dont have to play by the same rules we do. You should know that.

I'm Just Sayin'...    

Are you kidding #32?!?! He's smoking a friggin' cigarette. That is NOT on the road to "Brad Renfro." Sure it's not healthy, but in no way does it equate to an illegal substance that effs up your mind. It's a cigarette people, get over it.

WTF does Brad Renfro have to do with anything? Puhleez, it's cigarrette, not crack or heroin! What a totally lame waste of our judicial system's time.

He was smoking in an area where it is not legal. He was cited for it, not arrested. The bench warrant was for not showing on his court date for the citation. He is not being arrested for smoking, but for contempt of court.

#21 A fat person stuffing their face is hurting the health of no one else. Second hand smoke does kill. That was a ridiculous analogy! There is no second hand ingestion of cheeseburgers!

Dumb, dumb, dumb. Shouldn't the police be more worried about murders and rapes?

Why are they always trying to get some drama going with Shia -- arresting him for not leaving a drug store, smoking on the side walk. Leave Shia alone until he does something worthy of arrest like commandeering a vehicle, going on high speed chases while drunk and with cocaine in his pickets.
