Actor Shia LaBeouf is receiving treatment for alcohol addiction but is not in rehab.

LaBeouf was arrested following an incident at a play in New York last week and was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, one count of trespass, one count of criminal trespass and harassment in the second degree.

In a statement to TMZ, the star's representative said: "Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction."

The statement continued: "He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery.

"There will be no further comments made at this time."
