"Indiana Jones" star Shia LaBeouf was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving Sunday after an early morning car crash in which he was injured, police said.

LaBeouf was the driver of a pickup truck that was involved in a 3 a.m. collision in Hollywood, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Scott Wolf said.

"It was immediately apparent to officers responding on the scene that LaBeouf was intoxicated and he was subsequently placed under arrest," Wolf said.

LaBeouf was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for injuries to his head, left hand and knee, Wolf said. A female passenger in LaBeouf's truck and the driver of the other vehicle were not seriously injured.

LaBeouf, 22, was booked for a misdemeanor DUI and released, Wolf said.

Wolf did not know the identities of LeBeouf's passenger or the other driver.

LaBeouf tried to make a left turn when the vehicles collided and LaBeouf's pickup rolled over, Wolf said. The cause of the crash remained under investigation, and Wolf did not have additional details.

LaBeouf has been working as an actor for 10 years. He starred on the Disney Channel series "Even Stevens," starred in last year's "Transformers," and this year appears opposite Harrison Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

LaBeouf has had previous brushes with the law, but each was relatively harmless — to the point that they reinforced his image as a Hollywood good-guy with an edge.

In November, he was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing after a drunken tirade in a Chicago Walgreens.

He later told David Letterman on the "Late Show": "Drinking and driving is one thing, but drinking and shopping ... it's just as bad."

Prosecutors dropped charges because Walgreens Co. and a security company indicated they didn't want to continue the case.

Two of LaBeouf's publicists did not immediately return calls seeking comment Sunday. Neither did two attorneys who have previously represented LaBeouf.
