The entire original core cast is returning for the upcoming revival which will also include new characters like Keke’s Maya.

shia labeouf blows off steam during daily jog after being charged with battery and petty theft

Shia LaBeouf blew off some steam while taking his daily jog around his Pasadena neighborhood on Thursday.

The actor/screenwriter looked focused on his fitness as he hit the pavement in a sporty blue and grey look.

That same day reports emerged claiming LaBeouf, 34, had been charged with battery and theft following an altercation with a man over the summer.

Welcome distraction: Shia LaBeouf went running on Thursday, the same day as it was reported he had been charged with battery and theft following an incident with another man three months ago

But Shia didn’t seem to be worried about any legal woes while out, keeping his head down as he looped around the streets in a blue baseball hat, vintage tee shirt and Nike running leggings.

He had a swath of stubble along his jawline and opted against a mask during his run.

Word Shia was embroiled in a criminal case emerged via TMZ early Thursday.  

According to the site’s law enforcement sources, the actor got into a verbal argument with a man in June in Los Angeles.

An insider told the website that after the heated exchange was over, Shia took off the man’s cap and left the scene with it.

It is unclear what led to the altercation however neither Shia nor the other man are said to have sustained any major injuries.

The man is said to have filed a police report with cops determining that Shia was the aggressor in the incident.  

Shia was reportedly charged with battery and petty theft by L.A. City Attorney earlier this month, which are both misdemeanors.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Shia LaBeouf for comment.

Shia has had run-ins with the law in the past and was previously arrested for a drunken scuffle in New York City in 2017.

He was also arrested in the same year for disorderly conduct in Savannah, Georgia when he became aggressive towards a police officer he had asked for a cigarette. 

Charges: Shia was reportedly charged with battery and theft following an altercation with a man over the summer. He's pictured in October 2019 above

In 2014, he was arrested after disturbing a performance of the musical Cabaret on Broadway in New York.

He pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct violation and he then received outpatient care for alcohol addiction.

That same year, Shia spoke to Interview magazine and admitted: ‘I’ve been going through an existential crisis.’

According to the star his behavior and drug and alcohol use, as well as acting, has been his way to escape.

He said: ‘I’ve been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f***ing calamity or whatever it is, I’ve always been running.’       

Argument: An insider told the website that after the heated argument was over, Shia took off the man's cap and left the scene with it (pictured in February 2020)

At the time, Shia credited his film Fury, in which he plays a soldier who relies on his faith to get him through WWII, for helping him look at changing his ways.

He said: ‘I found God doing Fury. I became a Christian man, and not in a f***ing bullshit way – in a very real way.’

More recently, the actor dropped out of Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry, Darling earlier this month over scheduling conflicts, according to Deadline.

He was replaced by Harry Styles, who joins Dakota Johnson, Florence Pugh and Chris Pine in the cast of the psychological thriller.

She took a chance on learning how to dance in front of the public eye.

And Sadie Robertson revealed that after achieving a ‘six-pack’ from Dancing With The Stars practices, body shamers began commenting when she gained a few pounds back.

The 23-year-old Duck Dynasty star admitted in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that she developed an eating disorder and was surrounded by ‘negative influences,’ but credits her faith with overcoming the disease.

Roberston was the first runner-up on season 19 of the popular dancing competition where she partnered with Mark Ballas in 2014.

‘During Dancing with the Stars … I had this body that I never thought I’d have,’ she admitted. ‘I had a six-pack for two weeks, but then Thanksgiving hit and it went away. People started to comment.’

The pressure to keep her new body put Sadie into an obsessive tailspin with little support and a ‘really unhealthy view’ of her body.

‘There were people in my life who were just really negative influences, that would say things that were not uplifting about the way that I looked and how I needed to maintain the body that I had,’ she said. ‘It was so wrong. I was insecure at the time, so I believed them and thought, ‘”Oh, I need to push it.”‘

Sadie recalled hearing: ‘”Oh, if you lost 10 more pounds, you would look like a real model.” I was literally 115 pounds and already unhealthy. That just messed my mind up.’

Her downward spiral into negative self image included counting calories and measuring her body daily.

'It was so wrong,' she said. 'I was insecure at the time, so I believed them and thought, '"Oh, I need to push it"'

‘It was so wrong,’ she said. ‘I was insecure at the time, so I believed them and thought, ‘”Oh, I need to push it”‘

‘At least five times a day, I would wrap my hands around my thighs, making sure they hadn’t grown beyond what I could reach. I knew each little calorie that was in every bite of food I took,’ she said. ‘I talked about food all of the time.’

She relied on her faith to change her mindset and started reciting positive affirmations about her body. 

‘Instead I would tell myself, “I am so thankful that I have this. I’m so thankful that my legs actually serve the purpose that they should and that they’re able to run, that my arms are able to carry things. That my stomach one day, hopefully, will be able to carry a baby.” Just what we’re actually designed and created for.

‘It definitely made me stop thinking about myself as much,’ she added. ‘It allowed me to be able to think of others, and how I can serve them with the body I’ve been given.’  

'I am so thankful that I have this,' she told herself (seen with husband Christian Huff.) 'I'm so thankful that my legs actually serve the purpose that they should and that they're able to run, that my arms are able to carry things. That my stomach one day, hopefully, will be able to carry a baby'
