Actor Shia LaBeouf was recently arrested during a live-streamed anti-Donald Trump protest.

The (now suspended) Twitter account for his protest project #HeWillNotDivideUs alleged that LaBeouf got in an altercation with a Nazi, which led to his arrest.

The actor has subsequently been released, and TMZ has now stated that any charges against him have been dropped.

The site claims that there isn't enough evidence to prove that a crime had been committed during the altercation, and he won't face charges of assault and harassment.

Digital Spy has to reached out to representatives of LaBeouf for official comment.

LaBeouf and Jaden Smith launched the #HeWillNotDivideUs protest on Donald Trump's inauguration day back in January.

The live-streamed project encourages people to repeat the phrase "he will not divide us" as many times as they want into a camera.

It will apparently last for the entirety of the new president's time in the White House, so who knows what other incidents could come out of it.

If you're interested in watching the live-stream for yourself, you can check it out at the official website (although the stream is down at the time of writing).

After a rocky few years, Shia LaBeouf has got things back on track - he has been alcohol-free for over a year and his film American Honey was a film festival award-winner.
