Shia Rebuffs the Law

7/25/2009 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shia LeBeouf on a motorcycle ... let's review. He already has a bum hand from his horrible accident a year ago Monday. So riding a scooter in Sherman Oaks yesterday is just plain risky. Add to that riding without a helmet -- a legal no no in California. Add to that Shia's license was suspended for a year because he refused to take a chemical test after the crash.

He is a little cutie. Hopefully, he will get it out of his system and grow up. And live to tell about it.

TMZ.. check your facts before you turn the world against this kid... First off, it ISN'T a Motorcycle, it's a Honda Ruckus SCOOTER and secondly, it's a 50cc Scooter at that.. so there is NO LAW against doing that with scooters under 50cc..

The bikes pretty much go less than 40mph in the first place.. Should he still wear something... absolutely... however it is NOT a legal no-no..

Check your Facts!!!
