If you guessed the 30-year-old’s father Jeffrey LaBeouf, you’re absolutely correct. As you may know, the Transformers alum’s dad is a convicted pedophile who spent time in prison for attempted rape of a minor. And, according to DailyMail, the 68-year-old is wanted by the California police.
Reportedly, Jeffrey has been on the run for the last three years after he violated the registration requirements that he must follow as a convicted sex offender. Eek.
It’s said the elder LaBeouf was previously hiding out in a distant mountain community prior to fleeing the state. Nowadays, Shia’s poppa has been living under the radar in Costa Rica for the last 18 months. WHAT??
Supposedly, Jeffrey is dwelling in the area of Montezum — which is know for it’s history of sex tourism. Uhhh??
Although Jeffrey is only wanted in the state of California, he could still be arrested if caught anywhere in the United States. So it’s no wonder he skipped out on the El Lay native’s big day.
What’s odd is the controversial celeb’s father has practically vanished from the Megan’s Law database, which is a government controlled sex register. Not to mention, the Californian Attorney General’s Office confirmed to the publication that they currently don’t have a record of Jeffrey’s new location despite there not being any specific reason he would be removed from the listing. Oof.
Regardless, we think it’s a good thing the war veteran stayed away from his son’s nuptials as his arrest could’ve really ruined the day. Just sayin’…
