NEW YORK – Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf never ended up sharing a Broadway stage as planned last year. But real-life dramatics have landed both of them in a distinctly less celebrated venue: Manhattan criminal courts.
Both stars appeared Thursday in courtrooms a few blocks apart for separate disorderly conduct cases. LaBeouf is charged with disrupting a Broadway performance. Baldwin was accused of getting belligerent with police who said they stopped him for riding a bicycle the wrong way down a one-way street.
A judge put Baldwin’s case on track to be dismissed if he stays out of trouble for six months.
LaBeouf’s lawyer and prosecutors say they were trying to resolve his case. He’s due back in court in September.
