Shia LaBeouf

Had Been Looking

For a Bar Fight

2/7/2011 11:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shia LaBeouf has been a constant irritation at an L.A. sports bar recently -- with patrons complaining about his drunken, violent behavior ... even before a fight left him in handcuffs this weekend.

TMZ spoke with sources connected to Mad Bull's Tavern in Sherman Oaks, CA -- who tell us, the actor has been hanging around a lot lately ... but, "Every time Shia comes to the bar, he's a problem and it's starting to get old."

We're told Shia was the instigator in another testosterone-fueled incident just a few weeks ago -- in which bar staff had to break up close to 15 people before an intense pushing match turned into an all-out brawl.

As for Shia's fight this weekend, Mad Bull's owner Richard Disisto tells us, "The boys were out drinking, boys had too much to drink, one guy comments to the other and the next thing you know someone gets punched. Whattya gonna do? It happens."

As we previously reported, cops arrived to the scene and put Shia in handcuffs -- but he was never arrested.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, is this going to be another "I'm famous so I don't get charged with anything." like Charlie Sheen and Lyin' Lohan??? This may be interesting to watch.

Everything I have read said the other guy started it by trash talking Shia. The other guy thought because Shia is in the movies that it was okay to just go sit down at his table. When Shia said he was just chilling and asked to be left alone the other guy left the table. The other guy and his friends then trash talked Shia to his face and called him names when Shia left the bar.

Time for him to grow up! Unfortunately his money will probably keep him acting like an entitled idiot for years to come.

I can't blame Shia for wanting to be left alone. He's allowed to have time for himself & with friends. Whether he's drinking or not isn't the case. That douche of a guy started it by not leaving him alone. I hope Shia reports that other guy and his friends and sues him. Just because someone wants an autograph and picture doesn't mean the "actor" has to do it. You aren't entitled to anything.
