HE MUST HAVE caught a case of Hollywood madness.

Shia LaBeouf continued his bizarre descent into tabloid spectacle when he was escorted from a Broadway theater for yelling obscenities and continued to act nutty while being arrested, police said.

After his court appearance yesterday, the 28-year-old "Transformers" star, wearing a ripped blue T-shirt, declined to comment. He was arrested Thursday night on charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and harassment at the show "Cabaret."

The inside of the Broadway theater, once the notorious, coke-fueled Studio 54 disco, has been reworked to look like a decadent Berlin cabaret from the 1930s, with an offstage bar and waitresses who offer shots and cocktails. During the show, LaBeouf was seen offering a strawberry to a woman and lighting a cigarette.

According to police, security guards asked LaBeouf to leave about 8:45 p.m., but he refused and physically interfered with employees. Police said he threatened security guards and police officers.

Officers said he appeared intoxicated or under the influence of some kind of drug.

No, really?

In February, he participated in a performance-art oddity at a Los Angeles art gallery wearing a bag over his head with the words "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" scrawled in black ink across it.

Last year, LaBeouf came under fire for essentially ripping off the story and dialogue from a 2007 graphic novel by Daniel Clowes for a short film he made. LaBeouf apologized on Twitter in a series of posts that were directly lifted from other famous mea culpas - and then he paid a skywriter to scrawl "I am sorry Daniel Clowes" over Los Angeles.

Too hot for court

Soon after the Stockton, Calif., Police Department posted a mug shot of convicted felon Jeremy Meeks, the Internet quickly blew up over his steely, gray-eyed gaze, dubbing him the "Hot Convict."

Now, Meeks, who's facing five weapons charges and one gang charge, thinks his prison jumpsuit makes him look frumpy.

Attorney Tai Bogan filed court documents asking a judge to let Meeks wear custom-fitted clothing for his court appearances.

Meeks is asking "that measures be taken so he may wear civilian clothing that is fitting for his body structure."

Think quick, too

Romany Malco says the ensemble cast of "Think Like a Man Too" had to be fast on their feet.

Malco, who plays semi-reformed ladies' man Zeke, said in order to get the busy cast back together for the sequel, we "figured out the script as we went along."

"I didn't see the script until the day I showed up," he confessed in a recent interview.

If you read People Paper reviewer Gary Thompson's take on the movie, that would explain a lot.

Regardless, it pulled in $30 million last weekend - No. 1.

New 'View,' too?

Whoopi's the last woman standing. TMZ reports that "The View" is getting rid of the entire cast except for Whoopi Goldberg.

Sources told the online rag that during a meeting at ABC late Thursday, officials said Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were out. Sources said executive producer Bill Geddie also won't return.

"My View will be changing too. As will with many hard working folks," McCarthy tweeted on Thursday night. "Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year."

Barbara Walters left the show only a few weeks ago.
