■ Ac­tor Shia LaBeouf has been re­leased from a Ge­or­gia jail af­ter post­ing $7,000 bond on charges of pub­lic drunk­en­ness. The Chatham County sher­iff’s of­fice says the 31-year-old was ar­rested in a ho­tel lobby at 4 a.m. Satur­day by the Sa­van­nah Po­lice De­part­ment and was later re­leased. He also faces charges of dis­or­derly con­duct and ob­struc­tion. Po­lice say LaBeouf asked a by­stander for a cig­a­rette and when he was re­fused, he be­came dis­or­derly, “us­ing pro­fan­i­ties and vul­gar lan­guage in front of the women and chil­dren present.” When he was told to leave, po­lice say he re­fused and be­came ag­gres­sive to­ward an of­fi­cer. He ran to a nearby ho­tel to avoid ar­rest. LaBeouf is in the Sa­van­nah area film­ing his new movie, The Peanut But­ter Fal­con, which also stars Dakota John­son.

■ A com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­pher has sued Ken­dall and Kylie Jen­ner over the use of two of his images of late rap­per Tu­pac Shakur on T-shirts the sis­ters briefly sold for $125 apiece. Michael Miller sued the Jen­ner sis­ters in a Los An­ge­les fed­eral court Fri­day, al­leg­ing copy­right in­fringe­ment over the “vin­tage” T-shirts that fea­tured their like­ness or de­signs su­per­im­posed over photos of fa­mous mu­si­cians. Miller’s suit states that the Jen­ners never sought per­mis­sion to use his photos.

■ Po­lar­iz­ing right-wing writer Milo Yiannopoulos filed a $10 mil­lion law­suit against a New York pub­lish­ing com­pany Fri­day over a can­celed book deal. Yiannopoulos re­signed from the con­ser­va­tive web­site Bre­it­bart News this year af­ter com­ments he made about sex­ual re­la­tion­ships be­tween boys and men. In video clips, he ap­peared to de­fend sex­ual re­la­tion­ships be­tween men and boys as young as 13. He had planned a mem­oir ti­tled Dan­ger­ous and had a deal with Si­mon & Schus­ter to pub­lish it, but the com­pany dumped the book af­ter the com­ments sur­faced. Yiannopoulos’ law­suit says that the pub­lish­ing com­pany breached its con­tract and bowed to “false and mis­lead­ing re­ports.”
