Shia LaBeouf has been arrested for drunk driving after being involved in a car crash that has required the Transformers star to have surgery on his hand.

"Attorneys for Mr LaBeouf confirm that an automobile accident involving an additional party occurred early morning in Los Angeles on July 27, 2008," spokeswoman Melissa Kates said on Sunday.

"Shia is currently recovering from extensive hand surgery with plans to return to work on the set of Transformers 2 within one month. No further comment will be issued at this time."

The 22-year-old Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull star was charged with misdemeanour driving under the influence. Sergeant Scott Wolf from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told USmagazine.com that Shia "showed outward signs of intoxication".

Shia's getting a bit of a rep in Hollywood as a bad boy after being arrested after a drunken row in a Chicago pharmacy last November, and for having a warrant issued for his arrest after being caught smoking unlawfully in February.
