And it turns out…

OH man! He was acting so normal earlier in the day!
Just in case you missed it, the former Transformers actor was arrested and charged with criminal trespass plus two counts of disorderly conduct!
Shia was at a showing of Cabaret (you know the one that stars Alan Cumming and Michelle Williams!) in New York City when he was spotted smoking in the theater, slapping random people on the butt or head, spitting on the officers arresting him, and even throwing around a homophobic slur!
Which is definitely NOT proper Broadway etiquette!!
The Nymphomaniac actor was spotted out and about and even posed for an Instagram picture with a fan (above)!
Plus, he let another person record him giving a shout out to Carlos!
Judging by this evidence, you'd never have known Shia was going to have a complete meltdown that would lead to an arrest later in the night!
We wonder what it could have been that caused him to go off at other patrons of the show!
Guess we'll just have to wait until Shia breaks his silence to know the truth!
Ch-ch-check out the normal acting Shia in the fan's shout out video (below)!!!
