How to watch ‘Blair Academy’ in 2017
Aussie Academy Award winner Shia LaBeouf is back in the spotlight after being named in a police report over the death of an innocent man who died in a car crash.
The 22-year-old was arrested and charged with reckless driving and resisting arrest after a car collided with a pedestrian on Monday night.
He was released on bail yesterday, but remains in custody in a Brisbane hospital.
His father, Shaquille LaBeough, has accused the Australian government of a “sick game” after the incident and is urging authorities to investigate the man’s death.
Police allege that the driver of the car did not have his lights and sirens on and was travelling at an average speed of 50km/h (30mph) when he collided with the pedestrian.
Mr LaBeoughes said he had been told the man was a student at Khan Academy in the US and was “a great student” and “a good student”.
“He was very bright, and he was doing well,” he said.
“It’s the kind of stuff that I always ask my kids to be good students, to be the best student they can be.”
Mr Diallo’s family is planning a protest outside the hospital to demand answers over the driver’s death, and the arrest.
