Shia LaBeouf's not guilty plea

Shia LaBeouf entered a not guilty plea on a charge of unlawful smoking yesterday (19.03.08).
The 'Transformers' star's attorney Michael Norris appeared in a court in California's Burbank to enter the plea stemming from an incident that took place on February 18.
It was reported yesterday that an arrest warrant had been issued for LaBeouf after the actor and Norris failed to turn up at court for the initial hearing.
However, Norris has revealed the warrant was ordered but never issued, meaning the 21-year-old actor was not in danger of being arrested. The warrant order has now been withdrawn.
An arraignment and pre-trial hearing has been set for April 24.
LaBeouf - who can soon be seen starring alongside Harrison Ford in 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' - was also arrested in November for reportedly refusing to leave a Chicago pharmacy.
