Shia LaBeouf has returned to his anti-Trump protest following his arrest yesterday (Thursday).

The New York Police Department confirmed that the actor had been arrested after he'd allegedly assaulted an unnamed 25-year-old man outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens.

The 30-year-old actor has organised a protest called "he will not divide us" where a live stream has been set up to run 24/7 for the duration of Donald Trump's presidency.

The camera didn't show the incident, but it did show LaBeouf being led away in handcuffs by the police. 

In the moments before being arrested, he reportedly said this to the cameras:  "Hey, be nice. Everybody be nice down here. Just be nice. That's the only requirement. Be nice.

"That's all I ask. Pro this, pro that. Cool. But be nice."

The Associated Press has said LaBeouf faces a charge of misdemeanour as a misdemeanour assault, due to be heard in court on April 4.
