Security chased the D-bag down and used the atomic-wedgie technique to keep him from escaping. All while Shia and Megan got a laugh at the moron's expense.

The 21-year-old actor, who's rumored to be dating R&B sensation Rihanna, was sporting some major flesh -- definitely a side of him that should be shown more often. Surely he had no problem finding someone to help him apply a little sunblock.
