Actor Shia LaBeouf has been arrested after he allegedly got into an altercation with another man outside a New York City museum.

Police say LaBeouf pulled the scarf of an unidentified 25-year-old man early on Thursday morning outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, scratching his face in the process.

Police say he also pushed the man, who refused medical attention.

LaBeouf faces a misdemeanour assault charge.

LaBeouf has spent the first few days of Donald Trump’s presidency chanting, “He will not divide us,” in front of a live camera outside the museum.

The livestream is for a participatory public art project LaBeouf and two collaborators intend to have running for the next four years.
