A Man Was Punched In The Face Because He Looks Like Shia LeBeouf
You're walking in the woods. There's no one around. And your phone is dead. Out of the corner of your eye you spot him - Shia Labeouf.
Or at least someone you think is Shia. So you punch him in the face, run away, and that's that.
This is basically the synopsis of what happened to this man, Mario Licato, who got punched in the face simply for resembling the Transformers star.
Whilst walking up the stairs of Delancey Street station, New York, Mario was approached by a mid-20s muscular man.
"I didn't even see the guy. I just see his fist coming towards me. It knocked me, and while I was falling down the stairs, all I hear was, 'This is because you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf!'", Mario said.
Then followed the greatest police report ever filed:
"I wanna know what Shia LaBeouf did to him," Mario said. "What did Shia LaBeouf do to him that he punched somebody that looks like him? He must have did something so mean. Did he steal his girlfriend? Did he just see his last performance art piece?"
We many never know.
