Shia Labeouf - Shia Labeouf Says Bar Fight Was 'Awkward Incident'

Shia LaBeouf has dismissed his recent bar fight as just an "awkward situation".

The 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' actor was handcuffed after the altercation outside the Mad Bull's Tavern in Sherman Oaks, California in February - reportedly sparked when a reveller called him a "f***ing f****t" - but has dismissed the incident as drunken horseplay.

Speaking on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', he said: "I walked out to have a cigarette. I was away with some friends. Some guys instigated me and that's what it was. Some name calling.

"I didn't know them. It was just an awkward situation. I'm not trying to challenge anybody either, I was just there with my friends . People get drunk, people get crazy."

The incident saw Shia, 24, get involved in a war of words with fellow drinker Mark Mastro - who was responsible for the gay slur - outside the bar, before he allegedly charged at him.

It ended when a security guard put the actor into a headlock and handed him over to police officers who were nearby, although no charges were made and no one was arrested.

Despite his minor run-in with the law, Shia insists he is really a good guy, and revealed to Ellen he made a special card for his mum for Mother's Day.

He said: "I sketched this point of view of like two thighs in the air, and a doctor in front of the thighs as if she was giving birth, then in the passage where you have the doctor analysing the baby, his thoughts, I put, 'So it looks like he'll be a healthy child, he'll probably get arrested five times before he's 25, He'll probably crap on himself for 12 years of his life and hide the boxes all over the house. He'll probably steal money from you, He'll probably scream at you, he'll probably lie to you, run away from home, get kicked out of every school he ever went to. But he'll love you more than anyone you'll ever meet in all your life.' And she started crying."
