Shia's Attorney to Judge: Smoke This!

3/19/2008 4:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Shia LaBeouf finally showed this morning in a Burbank, Calif. court this morning to enter a plea -- sorta.

Attorney Michael Norris appeared on the "Transformers" star's behalf and pleaded not guilty to unlawful smoking.

A judge had issued a warrant for LaBeouf's arrest after he or his lawyer failed to appear yesterday in court.

A date of April 24 was set for an arraignment and pre-trial hearing.

UPDATE: Norris tells TMZ a warrant was ordered yesterday, but never issued -- so Shia "was never in danger of being arrested." The warrant was withdrawn today.

A trial for smoking a cigerette outside of a store???? Are you freaking kidding me? Makes me proud to be Canadian. Even our justice system isnt as f'ed up as that.

Burbank, CA is now an NON SMOKING city.
You can't smoke on the streets here, without taking the chance of getting an ticket from the police.

The city council was stupid for making Burbank, an non-smoking city.

And for $1000 bench warrant for that, it is just stupid! on the Judge's part.

Because of his prior arrest, I am sure that is why the judge is being so harsh. But, it does not make since to me! What a waste of taxpayer money. Aren't there better things to do???

I don't smoke and I certainly don't condone it but really now, aren't there any bigger fish to fry out in Burbank than Shia and his self-administering cancer?

I think the Burbank City Council erred in copying Calabasas' antismoking ordinance.It is being enforced gestapo-style in downtown Burbank ,any corner you turn there is the ubiquitous NO SMOKING sign,even atn the Metrolink Station where the anti-smoking ordinance does not apply. What an uptight city Burbank has become,thanks to a reactionary City Council,with some exceptions.
