MANHATTAN (PIX11/AP) — After actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested at a Manhattan theater, he allegedly lashed out at officers with a homosexual slur, a police source told PIX11 News Friday.

While in custody, LeBouf was acting “irrationally,” “yelling” and “slapping the walls with his hands,” the source added. At one point, the 28-year-old “Transformers” star “hit his head against the wall.”

LeBeouf has been holed up in his Midtown hotel since he was released on his own recognizance Friday morning.

Authorities said LaBeouf was taken out of a New York City theater Thursday night for being disorderly and yelling obscenities.

A spokesman for the Broadway show “Cabaret” said LaBeouf was “disruptive during Act 1” and was escorted out of the Studio 54 theater at intermission.

He faces charges that include disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.

The actor,  wearing a ripped blue T-shirt, skinny jeans and boots, walked several blocks to a hotel, surrounded by media, after his court appearance Friday. He declined to comment.

LaBeouf’s other films include “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” ”Disturbia” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”

He’s due back in court July 24.
