At the opening of the L.A. nightclub, The Box, LaBeouf spits water on his date, Karolyn Pho, and his tablemates which include Marilyn Manson. Manson attempts to calm the actor down to no effect. LaBeouf becomes more out of control, yelling at his date, and then lunges out of the club with Pho following behind. An eyewitness says:
Marilyn looked shocked and annoyed, but stayed seated. It was so insane — he just had a total meltdown right in front of everyone. It was completely out of control. He was so angry and physical.
