Shia LaBeouf

Allegedly Threatened

to Pull Knife after Brawl

10/20/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

shia labeouf vancouverThe man who tried to calm down Shia LaBeouf moments after the beatdown in Vancouver last week tells TMZ ... the actor threatened to pull a knife on him in the wake of the fight ... but he never actually flashed a blade.

TMZ spoke with Shea Carter ... the man who restrained Shia after the fight ... who tells us he noticed the actor inside the Cinema Public House bar BEFORE the melee. Carter says LaBeouf had been drunkenly swaying into several patrons ... including one man who calmly warned Shia, "Hey man, watch out."

Carter says Shia replied, "Oh yea? Or what? What are you going to do about it?"  That's when the two decided to take things outside ... and the guy beat Shia down to the ground.

Afterward, Carter -- a local hip hop artist and  bar regular -- tried to stop Shia from getting back inside, but LaBeouf got aggressive, spouting, "Well what if I grabbed my knife on you?"

Carter says he quickly grabbed Shia in an effort to protect himself in case the knife threat was serious.

Carter says the actor eventually walked away ... so he went back inside the bar. But moments later, Carter says, Shia appeared outside a window and made a throat-slashing gesture at him ... before leaving for the night.

TMZ placed multiple calls to Shia's rep for comment -- no word back.

Why is that creep in Shia's face. Was he even involved in the brawl? Besides Shia is part Cajun so he probably does a a knife on him somewhere. I think this jerk should have minded his own business.

Even though I'm sure Shia is a doosh, and he acts like a tough guy, there are two problems with taking Shea Carter's side. One, Shia was not heading for the entrance of the bar. He was walking away when this tool (Shea) who doesn't even know him, grabs him and chokes him while giving a pep talk. It's just bullying and controlling a guy who has already been humiliated. Picture you just got beat on the street, and were walking away, and some control freak starts giving you a pep talk on the sidewalk. Shia was hailing a freaking cab when he got beat. He wasn't going to enter the bar. Second thing,it looks like this guy is presuming an obnoxious familiarity with Shia that he doesn't have. Seriously what a goof to run up grabbing someone's neck after a situation is over, and then physically provoking a guy who is drunk, was leaving, and has just been beaten up. Shea Carter is a piece of garbage.

That bar is on a strip where ALL the douchebags go. Dozens of guys there behave like that on any given night... and they're NOT celebrities. I avoid that street like the plague, there are plenty more civilized places to go.

LeDouche... when you're done filming time for you to go on an extended vacation and check yourself into a rehab. No need to inform anyone where you're going. Just go before you actually run into someone at a bar who really has nothing to lose and I tell you from experience... getting stabbed is one of the worse way to go next to drowning.

**** happens, you get drunk and you bump into someone at the bar. But most people would simply say "Sorry" and the issue would be over. This douchebag had to keep it going and it serves him right getting a little whooping out in the street. Common courtesy goes a long way...ego problems don't. Go home Shia. And lay off the booze. And fix your attitude problem.
