Michael Bay Says Shia LaBeouf “Was Not Drunk”

{mosimage} In an interview with Access Hollywood, director Michael Bay says that Shia wasn't DUI during the car accident on Sunday morning. After talking with the young actor in Cedars-Sinai, Bay says that they're "figuring out a way to shoot around [Shia's injured hand], kind of write it in the story."

In a strange twist, director and actor had a talk regarding safety days before the accident, Shia showing off a new motorcycle, Bay dissuading him from riding it, and Shia promising to keep to his truck. "[Shia] really has his head together and you know, he’s only 22," the director said. "He’s doing a great job on this movie. He’s really matured since the last one and I love working with him.”
