Actor Shia LaBeouf was sitting at a table outside the Renaissance Hotel, sipping coffee and reading the book “Bad Boy: The Life and Politics of Lee Atwater.” When he looked up from his book, he was apparently dismayed to notice paparazzi photographer Mark Wilkins taking his photo. Wilkins said that he had only been taking photos for three minutes when the obviously irked star fought back.
Wilkins said, “He looked up and saw me, packed up his stuff, then it looked like he was thinking.” Without saying a word, LaBeouf ran to Wilkins, dumped the remainder of his coffee on the man’s head and continued running. The photographer did confirm that the dumped coffee was at least cold.
Unfortunately for LaBeouf, the incident will not end with the photographer’s account of the coffee shower.
The entire incident was caught on video.
