Actor Shia LaBeouf was charged last month with misdemeanor battery and petty theft over a June incident in which he allegedly fought with a man and and took his hat, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney.

In a criminal complaint filed September 24, prosecutors alleged that on June 12, LaBeouf willfully and unlawfully used force upon a man named Tyler Murphy and stole his hat.

LaBeouf is scheduled to be arraigned on November 19, according to the complaint.

Emails to LaBeouf's manager and representative did not receive an immediate response. Calls to LaBeouf's attorney were not immediately returned.

LaBeouf, 34, has had run-ins with the law before. In 2017 he was arrested for public drunkenness and in 2008 he was arrested on the suspicion of drunk driving.
