Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf has been arrested after refusing to leave a pharmacy in Chicago.

The star, who played the role of a teenager who bought the special Bumblebee car in this summer's hit, was charged with misdemeanour trespassing over the incident.

The 21-year-old actor apparently refused to leave the store in spite of a security guard repeatedly asking him to do so.

US magazine cites an unnamed source as saying that LaBeouf had been seen at a club in Chicago earlier in the evening. He was taken to a local Police station at half past two in the morning local time, soon after the incident.

A spokeswoman for the Chicago police said they had no problems with the actor.

"While he was in custody, LaBeouf was very courteous and polite," she said.

The actor, who will star in the new Indiana Jones film next year, is scheduled to appear in court on November 28th.
