Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Shia LaBeouf was arrested on camera Wednesday in New York City during the actor's ongoing, livestreamed protest of President Trump.
LaBeouf was confronted by police and put into handcuffs after he had pushed a 25-year-old man who said "Hitler did nothing wrong" while pretending to take a selfie with him, The Telegraph reported.
The protest project, titled He Will Not Divide Us, consists of a livestream filmed outside the Museum of the Moving Image and has been planned to last for four years.
In video released by the movement's Twitter page, protesters and LaBeouf can be seen repeating the phrase, "He will not divide us," until police arrived to escort the actor away. A video of the confrontation was also shared.
Police have noted that LaBeouf faces a misdemeanor assault charge after he pushed the man and pulled on his scarf, scratching his face in the process.
The group posted on their Twitter feed Thursday that the actor was free.
"Shia has been released #ShiaisFree #HeWilNotDivideUs," they wrote.
