Shia LaBeouf Loses License in Relation to California DUI

Actor had charges of drunk driving in Los Angeles dropped, but he still loses license for a year.

Shia LaBeouf has had his driver’s license suspended stemming from an accident and a case of suspected drunk driving in Los Angeles, California. LaBeouf was involved in a two vehicle accident in West Hollywood last July. While he was initially arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, the LA County Sheriff’s Department later said there was insufficient evidence to press charges.

At the time of the accident, the ‘Transformers’ star refused to submit to a breath test to check for blood alcohol content. Even though he was cleared of CA DUI charges, that refusal was used by the Department of Motor Vehicles to automatically suspend LeBeouf’s license. California DUI law states that a person’s license shall be suspended for up to one year when he/she refuses to submit to a chemical test (blood, breath or urine) when drunk driving is suspected.

It was later determined that the other motorist ran a red light and struck LeBeouf’s Ford pick-up truck while he was making a left turn. LeBeouf, 22, had his hand crushed in the accident and has had two surgeries since the July 27 accident.
