LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Shia LaBeouf’s driver’s license has been suspended, as a result of his July 2008 car crash, Access Hollywood has learned.
The suspension, which took effect January 17, 2009, is the result of LaBeouf’s “refusal of chemical tests” in the wake of his accident, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The suspension will last a minimum of one year.
In September, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office announced there was “insufficient evidence” to charge the “Transformers” with drunken driving for his involvement in the accident, which left his hand badly injured.
The actor was arrested for suspicion of DUI following the crash after showing “physical signs” of being impaired, LA Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Steve Whitmore previously said.
However, at the time, the DA’s office did note LaBeouf’s refusal to take a breathalyzer test could result in a suspension of his license.
Sheriff’s deputies said later that LaBeouf was not at fault in the accident.
