Following an altercation last month, in which he was booted from a Los Angeles bowling alley, actor Shia LaBeouf is being sued over the incident.

As previously reported, Shia was involved in a heated exchange at Pinz in Studio City in April. He was drinking beers for hours, and at some point, he went into Jerry’s Deli — which is connected to Pinz — and got into an altercation with the bartender after he refused to serve him.

“So, you’re gonna hit me with a Grey Goose bottle? I’m asking you about why you won’t serve me french fries,” Shia yelled at the bartender, which was captured in a video recorded by a patron. “I’m asking you about french fries and you wanna hit me in the head with a Grey Goose bottle?”

“You f*cking racist!! F*ck you,” he also yelled.

The bartender, who has been revealed as David Bernstein, has filed a lawsuit, seeking $5 million in damages, according to the New York Daily News.

In court docs, Bernstein claims LaBeouf entered the an employees area and slammed his fist on the bar, so he refused to serve him. The report says the conflict may stem from Bernstein’s possible belief that both LaBeouf and his wife, Mia Goth, were already overserved.
