The 26-year-old Transformers star got involved in a scrap with an over-eager fan at the popular drinking spot in the New Cross area of the British capital after he went drinking with his Nymphomaniac co-star Mia Goth, 19.
“It was just a minor scrap and Shia is not banned from The Hobgoblin — we all hope he comes back for a quiet pint soon,” landlord Mark Harris told Celebuzz.
Harris even had to help the star get into a nearby taxi before things got out of hand.
“He was having a good time with Mia and he was happily posing for photographs and signing autographs when this guy knocked off his baseball cap and they got involved in some pushing and shoving. But the police were never called or anything like that,” he added.
“Shia actually got his baseball cap back and he was just a little frustrated that’s all.
“I actually helped Shia across the road and into a taxi,” Harris said. “He was a little drunk, but he was not looking to fight anyone or cause trouble.
“Mia’s mother Rachel is a regular here and she lives close-by and there have never been any problems with her family. We have had Princess Eugenie and Eddie Izzard visit The Hobgoblin before, so, we are used to having celebrities drop-in.”
The multi-millionaire actor is no stranger to trouble. In 2011, he got into a squabble with patrons at Mad Bull’s Tavern in Sherman Oaks, Calif. and last year he was caught on video getting involved in a fight outside a bar in Vancouver, Canada.
