Shia LaBeouf was handcuffed and taken away by an NYPD officer early Thursday after the actor allegedly got into an altercation during his ongoing livestream protest of President Trump.
In the video, LaBeouf can be seen being led away by a police officer as his supporters continually chant, “He will not divide us!”
At one point, someone says to the camera, “Shia took a hit for us. There were all these Nazis here, he came out and tried to protect us.”
According to a Twitter account for the livestream, the incident that caused LaBeouf to be arrested occurred when someone came up to him and said, “Hitler did nothing wrong!” LaBeouf reacted by shoving the guy away.
Jaden Smith, who has made an appearance at the protest, tweeted his support for LaBeouf, writing simply, “#FreeShia.”
LaBeouf has been livestreaming from the same location in Queens since Friday and police have been camped nearby since Monday.
The livestream has continued on even without LaBeouf.
