Chased Around a Homeless Guy

Hours Before Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0627_shia_photos_launchBefore Shia LaBeouf got arrested and thrown out of a Broadway show ... he argued with a homeless guy on the streets of New York ... over a hat.

According to an eyewitness, a few hours before his arrest ... Shia confronted a homeless guy on the street. It appeared to the witness as if Shia thought the hat was his and Shia was trying to get it back.

You can see in the photos ... Shia is chasing after the homeless guy as he runs around holding the hat.  

The eye witness tells TMZ, Shia was acting as if he knew the guy, but Shia seemed "whacked out" and was making no sense. The witness claims Shia kept saying, "It's me, Shia."

He is lucky he didn't pick the wrong guy to mess with. In NYC he could've easily found out the hard way. Always thought he suffered from some kind of mental illness.

Oh man, he's the male Amanda Bynes - he needs to get off illegal drugs and get some psychiatric help for schizophrenia/bipolar or whatever else is going on inside his head. I used to think he was just a narcissistic jerk, but I actually feel a little sorry for him now. Geeeezzz...

It's all fun and games until he tries to light a small dog on fire. I guess no one is going to intervene until he is on or over the brink. This looks familiar.

It's apparent to me he's either having a mental breakdown a la Amanda Bynes or he's on drugs.

This boy has been on the downward spiral for a while now. To be this whacked out he's gotta be mixing pills with alcohol. Crazy. He needs help before this reaches the tragic conclusion.
