Shia LaBeouf

Books it For Alcohol Treatment

7/1/2014 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0701_Shia-LaBeouf_aa_books_x17Shia LaBeouf showed strong signs today he's getting help for some kind of substance abuse issue in the wake of his string of bizarre meltdowns.

Shia was in the L.A. area ... clutching an Alcoholics Anonymous book.

We don't know if Shia is just reading up or taking more formal action ... but it would seem there's a connection to his arrest last week after causing a scene at Studio 54 in NYC.  As we reported, there have been other -- apparently alcohol-fueled incidents -- at a strip club in New York a week earlier and at a restaurant in L.A. a month ago.

We've reached out for comment about the photos ... so far no word back.

Photo op. I don't trust these types of staged photos. It's obvious he WANTS people to think he's getting help. Time will tell if it's real or not.

Shia needs more than AA book to shovel out of the deep, deep hole of drunken embarassment he's gotten himself into. Hopefully, the above photo wasn't just for publicity and he really is getting the help he desperately needs.

He's holding those books in a way the paps can get a good picture of them. What a creepy jerk. But I hope Shia gets help for whatever is ailing him.

Well hell, you all report everything else like you know it to be the gospel truth....and yet you guesstimate on this.

I hope that Shia is getting the help he so desperately needs. He needs to stay out of the party scene, and people that work for him, need to stop enabling him.

He needs to take that Che Guevera shirt off. That dude was a worthless Marxist that enjoyed murdering people that did not share his views. FACT.
