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.

First he gets tossed out of Walgreens and now wanted for 'Unwanted smoking'(outside-as in 'open air')
What is next? Jail for walking on the grass? A trial for 'unlawful gum chewing'? Egads-I will be his next crime is Jay-Walking on a non busy street.

Oh please, the man probably didn´t know. not everyone knows EVERY law, people might forget sometimes.
Oh police go after the real murders, and rapists, pedophiles, those are the ones who need to be locked up forever.

Duuuuuuuuuuude, stop the smoking. It's SOOOO bad for you. You're still young so it's a little easier to quit. Who wants to cart around an oxygen tank in your later yrs?

Burbank sucks. The cops will seriously bust you for any stupid infraction just cause they have nothing else to look for. Be it having loud music, jay walking, and smoking. Transfer some of them Burbank cops down to Los Angeles and help the growing problem of gang violence.

13. This is too funny. I don't condone smoking, but while there are bigtime drugdealers and really dangerous serial killers, the government is worried about "unlawful smoking".....wait a minute, wasn't this supposed to be a free country???!!! Save the cell for a REAL criminal. This government is STUPID!! the government should be thrown in jail for being unjust.!!!

Gots to b mo careful    

A friggin ticket for taking a drag...wow...Now I know some of you all have really got to be playing on others intelligence when you question who Shia LaBeouf really is right??? But in case you are serious ...Some of his latest work would be Transformers and Disturbia in which he starred in I helped you out this far now go google him and a text book that may help your brain no more than attempting to be a smart a%@ and not know anything...smooches!!!
