Shia LaBeouf was placed in handcuffs after a fight at a bar last night, but was eventually released ... TMZ has learned.
It all went down at Mad Bull's Tavern in Sherman Oaks, CA. Sources at the bar tell TMZ, Shia is a frequent patron of the establishment. According to witnesses, he got a little rowdy and ended up getting punched in the face.
Sources close to Shia paint a different story -- they say Shia was jumped on his way out of the bar. They say police arrived on scene shortly thereafter, cuffed everyone involved, and eventually let Shia go. Police have no record of any arrests being made.
Sources close to the actor say the security guard at the bar backed up Shia's version of events.
