- “He Will Not Divide Us”
LaBeouf was arrested on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges, according to the New York Times.
Police told the New York Times they were called after LaBeouf got into a fight with a man and pulled his scarf, scratching him.
A video of LaBeouf being handcuffed and taken into police custody appeared online.
“How are we going to make this s— OK to be a Nazi out here?” LaBeouf said in the video. “That’s bulls—, bro, it’s not OK. He will not divide us.”
Two videos show LaBeouf having confrontations with people at the protest, which is being live-streamed. In one, a man stands alongside LaBeouf and says “Hitler did nothing wrong” and LaBeouf shoves him.
LaBeouf’s anti-Trump protest invites anyone to stand in the space and repeat “He will not divide us.” The live-stream plans to run constantly for four years.
NYPD and a representative for LaBeouf did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s requests for comment.
