Shia LaBeouf throws coffee on D.C. paparazzo

By Jen Chaney

Just when it seemed like the "Transformers: The Dark of the Moon" movie shoot had come and gone from D.C. relatively peacefully, this video arrived on the Web.

The backstory on the clip, for those afraid to click on video in their offices: Shia LaBeouf, star of the "Transformers" movie, was in town with the production. And, like any human being, wanted to grab some downtime at a coffee shop. But some photographers wanted to snap some photos. And LaBeouf didn't like that so much. So, as reports, he got up from his seat, packed his things, chased a photographer, threw coffee on him and ran away.

Was the coffee throwing necessary? Better question: was it smart, when LaBeouf should have assumed that some other enterprising individual nearby had a video camera and was just waiting to capture the chucking of the caffeinated beverage?

Personally, I like the part where he immediately runs away after throwing the drink. That's such a Sam Witwicky move.

That is so awesomely chicken-shift of LeBeouf.

And, who knew DC even had a "paparazzo"?

Did he tell the paparazzo, “ NO, NO, NO, NO, NO….” first?

In Shia's defence, he ran to get more coffee.

Obviously, these two worthless Washington Post reporters have too much time on their hands.

Unlike Viennacommuter1, who is so busy saving the world that she barely has time to carve out of her day to read a blog post in which she has no interest and post a stupid comment.

And Shia LeShow-me-the-Beef is a big baby.

I bet you the paparazzo wouldn't stop saying his name. "Shia LaBeouf! Shia LaBeouf! Shia LaBeouf! You have a silly name! Shia LaBeouf!" Unfortunately, say it three times in a row and it summons his enraged alter ego. Kind of like Beetlejuice, but with more frothing at the mouth.

I just got word that this was actually a scene from the next Indiana Jones sequel - Indiana Jones and the Latte of Gloom.
