Actor and performance artist Shia LaBeouf has been arrested on misdemeanour assault and harassment charges.

The arrest comes after things got very heated when Shia was protesting President Trump at a live stream art installation in New York City.

Unfortunately for Shia, because the arrest was made during the live stream the video has gone viral online.

In the moments before his arrest, he issued a plea into the camera.

"Hey, be nice. Everybody be nice down here, man. Just be nice! That's the only requirement. Be nice!" he said. "That's all I ask. Be nice. Pro this, pro that. Cool. But be nice."

In case you need some catching up, Shia has been very involved in the anti-Trump protest ever since it was announced he was running for president. Over the last few weeks, he has become even more and more vocal.

Police said Shia pulled the scarf of a 25-year-old man outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, scratching his face in the process.

They said he also pushed the man, who refused medical attention.

Following those reports, Shia was then charged for misdemeanour assault and a harassment violation.

The actor has been very public about his plans to protest President Trump while he is in office including a 24/7 live stream, which would run for the full four years.

Shia took to his website saying, “Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish. Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.”

Shia has been instructed by police to attend to court on April 4 and he has since been released from holding… and well, the live stream is still running.
