Lesson Learned LaBeouf DUI

Shia LaBeouf and the DUI


Actor had charges of drunk driving in Los Angeles dropped, but he still loses license for a year.


Shia LaBeouf was arrested early on suspicion of drunk driving, after he tried to make a left turn at an intersection of West Hollywood and instead got into a car crash when he ran into another vehicle. LaBeouf rolled the truck he was driving, injuring his hand and knee in the process.


Actor LaBeouf, star of INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL and the blockbsuster TRANSFORMERS, was booked for a misdemeanor DUI and then released for medical attention for his injuries. A female passenger of LaBeouf’s and the driver of the vehicle he hit were not seriously hurt.




Insufficient Evidence to Prosecute

Shia LaBeouf had his driver’s license suspended stemming from the accident and a case of suspected drunk driving in Los Angeles, California. LaBeouf was involved in a two vehicle accident in West Hollywood last July. While he was initially arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, the LA County Sheriff’s Department later said there was insufficient evidence to press charges.

At the time of the accident, the ‘Transformers" star refused to submit to a breath test to check for blood alcohol content. Even though he was cleared of CA DUI charges, that refusal was used by the Department of Motor Vehicles to automatically suspend LeBeouf’s license.

These Illegal Per Se Laws are Illegal

California DUI law states that a person’s license shall be suspended for up to one year when he/she refuses to submit to a chemical test (blood, breath or urine) when drunk driving is suspected.

It was later determined that the other motorist ran a red light and struck LeBeouf’s Ford pick-up truck while he was making a left turn. LeBeouf, 22, had his hand crushed in the accident and has had two surgeries since the July 27 accident.

Do you see the DUI charges normally relieve the police of having to do any actual POLICE WORK. In a normal case, they would have charged LaBeouf with DUI, gotten their DUI fees and penalties and everyone would have gone home. It wasn't until LaBeouf refused to take a breath test did the officers have to continue with the investigation OOOOOoooops it was the other driver's fault all along.

What's the Lesson?

What can we the public learn from this? Now for him to lose his license, probably won't impact him that much. He could get someone to drive him where ever he wants to go. For the average person though losing their license would seriously hamper their lifestyle. But the lesson is, you have a constitutional right to refuse submitting yourself to state invasion. Regardless of the legislation the state passes, they really have no authority to invade your privacy. If more people woke up and realized this we wouldn't be headed toward the Nazi fascism we are today. It might hurt at first, i.e. losing your license, but I feel it's a small price to pay for freedom.

Well maybe it's time for Shia LaBeouf and all of us started supporting organizations like R.I.D.L.(Responsibility in DUI laws). MADD and their anti-alcohol Jihad has gotten way out of hand. God knows what crazy law tomorrow will bring. Support and visit them at www.ridl.us join in the forums to help fight back. You'll be glad you did. Good night Bill...

Thank you anonymous for taking the time to READ... oh wait, you didn't read it at all, did you? In fact, your screaming comment proves you didn't.

Leave Shia alone? If you had read the post you would have seen that I am on Shia's side, and am asking people to side with him and do exactly what he did.

Weird you'd get upset over something I didn't write. But... that's the internet.
