As we've seen in the past few years, Shia LaBeouf is really good at getting into fights and then being left bloody on the street after losing those fights. But on Thursday, something strange happened... He got into a fight and didn't lose. And more importantly, he did the right thing by standing up to the other guy.
TMZ got a video of the altercation which took place inside of a bar in London. LaBeouf was there with his girlfriend and "Nymphomaniac" co-star Mia Goth, and her mother, when a random man decided to say something offensive to the mother.
LaBeouf quickly got in his face and yelled "what did you just say?" The man sat there quietly, so the actor lightly head-butted him. The man backed down and a fist-fight was averted.
After the incident, LaBeouf apologized to the crowd stating that he never meant for things to happen that way and just wanted to protect Mia's mother. He went on to refer to himself as "more normal than the average person."
Watch the video below to see the head-butt for yourself.

Something tells me, with his crazy behavior post transformers, and his explanation following this "fight", that this was staged.
Looks, smells like a PR stunt to me. Seriously guys, who is afraid of a pibsqueak like shia?
Do you guys know whay shia's nickname in jail would be????

If Shia LaBeouf ever got in my face like that and head-butted me, I honestly think I would put him in the hospital. I'm not joking. Not even slightly. Nor am I speaking hyperbole.
That motherf*cker would be picking up his teeth with broken fingers.

I think by now we all know Shia is one of those "men" who start fights they know they can't win just because they have something to prove. You know the type. Little guy with a Napoleon Complex walks into a bar, has a few drinks and then starts a fight with the biggest bruiser in the room.
I just have a very hard time believing people are picking on Shia for no reason.
Although I've seen many seen many little dudes w/ Napoleon Complexes demolish big dudes w/ Goliath Complexes.
It's like a Lumberjack hacking down a redwood tree. You just say to yourself, "Wow. Impressive."

That little head butt would get anyone here in the states out of any legal consequences for any fight that came after it. You could mop the floor with that little prick and then sue him for assault. What a huge missed opportunity.

It was a weak head-butt anyway, and from the video it looks like he tried to butt him from the front which is the wrong place to do it. You head-butt from the side, not the front, because the cranial plates are thickest at the front.
