Eagle Eye star Shia LaBeouf has escaped drunken driving charges related to the car crash that left him with a broken hand in July.
On Thursday (Sept. 25) Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney, stated that there was “insufficient evidence” to pursue a case against the actor. Although he exhibited visible signs of intoxication, Mr. LaBeouf had refused to take a breathalyzer test on the night of the accident.
Steve Whitmore, a spokesman Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, added Thursday that Mr. LaBeouf faces the possibility of having his driver’s license suspended at a traffic hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles scheduled for today.
Mr. LaBeouf was arrested and later hospitalized for several days after the July 27 incident. It was later determined by Sheriff’s deputies that he was not the cause of the West Hollywood accident.
