NYPD officers hauled Shia LaBeouf away in handcuffs from his marathon protest site in NYC … after he got into it with another protester.
The arrest happened right in the middle of Shia’s “He will not divide us” live stream … which has been going on since
President Trump’s inauguration. Cops tell us a guy walked in front of the mounted camera and said something — possibly regarding Trump — but whatever it was, Shia got pissed.

Shia grabbed for the guy’s scarf, and allegedly scratched him in the process. As TMZ first reported … NYPD has been posted up at the protest site since Monday — so officers quickly moved in and busted Shia. Some of his fellow protesters said,
“Shia took a hit for us. There were all these Nazis here, he came out and tried to protect us.”
According to TMZ, he’s most likely looking at a misdemeanor assault charge.
Shia’s fellow protesters/followers are carrying on without him.
