Shia LaBeouf has been reportedly been released following his arrest on Wednesday evening at the site of his anti-Donald Trump art installation in New York.

LaBeouf was handcuffed by police and taken to a location station after allegedly having a scuffle with a man with different political opinions.

The official Twitter page for the He Will Not Divide Us installation has now said that the actor has been released.

The American Honey star had set up the 'He Will Not Divide Us' anti-Donald Trump livestream since the US President took office last week and aims to hold a permanent protest for the next four years, or as long as Trump is in office.

A video taken from the art installation at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York shows the 30-year-old actor being arrested in the background of the footage on Wednesday.

The exact circumstances of his arrest are as yet unclear, however the official He Will Not Divide Us Twitter page posted a video of LaBeouf briefly shoving another man after he said "Hitler did nothing wrong", along with the caption: "Shia LaBeouf has been arrested by NYPD, because of this video".

LaBeouf created the anti-Trump installation along with Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner to protest the new US President. NYPD law enforcement officials have been stationed at the site since Monday.
