ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Actor Shia LaBeouf, who was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after disturbing a performance of a Broadway show in June, made a brief appearance on Thursday in Manhattan Criminal Court where a judge adjourned the case until September. Dressed in a dark suit and tie, the bearded actor who starred in the "Transformer" movies and with Harrison Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," was silent during the brief hearing. His attorney G. Robert Gage, Jr. and Assistant District Attorney Ali Russell said they were discussing a possible resolution to the case and asked for more time. The case was adjourned until September 10. Gage did not respond to a request for comment. LaBeouf, 28, was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, one count of trespass, one count of criminal trespass and harassment in the second degree during his arraignment on June 27 following the incident during a performance of "Cabaret" at Studio 54. All of the charges are misdemeanors or violations so he would face minimal or no jail time if found guilty. The actor made no comment as he was escorted out of the building to a waiting barrage of camera crews and photographs outside the court in lower Manhattan. A week after his New York arrest LaBeouf's publicist said he was receiving outpatient care for addiction and that he had realized his strange behavior was a symptom of a bigger health problem. Thursday's court appearance followed a series of events recently in which the actor behaved strangely. In February he walked out of a press conference and attended a red carpet premiere at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival to promote the movie "Nymphomaniac Volume 1" wearing a brown paper bag on his head saying "I Am Not Famous Anymore." The California-born actor also wore a brown bag when he met visitors at an unusual art installation he had organized in Los Angeles. LaBeouf also apologized to a graphic artist whose work he was accused of plagiarizing in his short film "Howard Cantour.com." The actor has completed filming and will next appear in the World War Two drama "Fury" with actor Brad Pitt.
