NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Actor Shia LaBeouf was released from police custody Friday morning after he allegedly disrupted a performance of "Cabaret" on Broadway Thursday night and threatened police officers who escorted him out, said police.

Wearing a ripped blue-T shirt, skinny jeans and boots, the 'Transformers' star walked out of the Midtown North Precinct alone at about 10 a.m. and was quickly surrounded by reporters and photographers.  He did not comment.

LaBeouf walked several blocks to The London NYC hotel on West 54th St. 

On Thursday, security guards asked LaBeouf to leave the Studio 54 theater at about 8:45 p.m., but he refused, used obscene language and physically interfered with employees, according to police. He made aggressive statements and threats to security guards and police officers, added police.

LaBeouf was acting irrationally, continued to make aggressive statements and used foul language after he was removed from the theater and throughout the arrest process, said police. Officers said he appeared intoxicated or under the influence of some kind of drug.

A spokesman for "Cabaret" says LaBeouf was "disruptive during Act 1" and was escorted out of the theater at intermission.

LeBeouf, who was represented by a Legal Aid attorney Friday, was due back in court July 24.

The actor is known for his roles in films such as "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Holes," and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."

As far back as last year, LaBeuouf's behavior became stranger. 

Last year, LaBeuof was going to debut on Broadway with the production of "Orphans," which included Alec Baldwin, but LaBeuof left due to "creative differences." 

He was also under fire for borrowing content from the graphic novel "The Death-Ray" for his short film "Howard Cantour.com," and when asked to apologize, used from other celebrities.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
