Warrant issued for ‘Transformers’ star

An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for Shia LeBeouf, the 22-year-old actor who starred in last year’s “Transformers,” police said Tuesday.

LeBeouf failed to appear in Burbank Superior Court Tuesday morning after police cited him in February for smoking in Downtown Burbank, a misdemeanor offense, under the city’s smoking ordinance passed last year, a court representative said.

“He received a smoking citation at 314 N. San Fernando [Blvd.] on Feb. 18,” Sgt. Travis Irving said.

The penalties for smoking in Downtown Burbank — as well as other Burbank zones that outlaw lighting up a cigarette — range from $25 to $200 and require a court appearance, he said.

LeBeouf failed to show up in Burbank for his 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning appearance, and a $1,000 bench warrant has been issued for his arrest, officials said.
