Shia LaBeouf was arrested for drunk driving after being involved in an early morning car accident in Hollywood on Sunday.

LaBeouf, 22, was driving when his car was involved in a collision around 3 a.m., Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. S. Wolf told the Associated Press.

"It was immediately apparent to officers responding on the scene that LaBeouf was intoxicated and he was subsequently placed under arrest," Wolf said.

The actor was booked for a misdemeanor DUI and released.

He was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for injuries he sustained to his head, left hand and knee. The passenger riding with LaBeouf and the driver of the other car involved in the crash weren't seriously hurt.

LaBeouf, who recently co-starred in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was trying to make a left turn when the accident happened and his car rolled over.

A rep for the actor had no comment.

This is not the star's first run-in with the law. Last November, he was arrested at a Walgreens in Chicago after he refused to leave the store and because he appeared intoxicated. The charges were later dropped.

LaBeouf said later that he was "embarrassed" about the incident.
