Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf, who was arrested for drunk driving on Sunday following a car crash in Hollywood, has undergone hand surgery, his rep has revealed.
The rising star was reportedly taken to Hollywood's celeb-friendly Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre for treatment of substantial injures to his left hand, as well as a head injury.
LaBeouf hit the headlines after rolling his car on Sunday morning.
Reports say the actor was trying to make a left turn at a West Hollywood intersection when his pickup collided with another vehicle.
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."
The actor was then arrested for misdemeanor DUI and subsequently released.
Of LaBeouf's injuries, his mouthpiece, Melissa Kates, said in a statement to the media:
"Attorneys for Mr. LaBeouf confirm that an automobile accident involving an additional party occurred early morning in Los Angeles on July 27, 2008.
"Shia is currently recovering from extensive hand surgery with plans to return to work on the set of Transformers 2 within one month. No further comment will be issued at this time. "
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

It's not a good look is it.
The guy's obviously lucky to be alive. What a waste. What on earth possessed him to drink and drive? Surely he's got hired minions to cart him around?
Bono is a God
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie want Bono to be godfather to their brand new twins.
The proud parents are said to be super keen for the music legend to be a superstar godfather to newborn twins, little Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.
Brangelina apparently spent some time bonding with their new bundles of joy at Bono's exclusive pad in the South of France.
A snitch tells British newspaper the Sunday Mirror: "Brad and Angie think the world of Bono. They have been friends for years. Brad is a massive U2 fan and told Bono how much he admired him when they were introduced at a party a few years back.
"Since then, they've become very close, which Brad is thrilled about.
Whitney Houston's make-or-break comeback single has been 'leaked' on the interwebnet.
The highly-anticipated new track, Like I Never Left, featuring the vocal talents of R+B star Akon, has spread like wildfire since it debuted online a couple of days ago.
It's no contender for an Ivor Novello, but it's passable.
Houston's brand new album is expected to drop in December.
And she's back
YouTube sensation Tricia Walsh-Smith has just uploaded another gem onto the video sharing website.
The vengeful vat of vitriol is really on a roll.
As always, it's priceless.
This time she's gunning for Kathie Lee Gifford and selling her ex-husband's possessions on eBay, including (eugh!) his condoms - which the razor-tongued darling claims were too big for him anyway. Don't ask. Just watch.
Tears. Will end in.

Hulk Hogan's celebuspawn Brooke is not a happy bunny.
The wannabe starlet is kicking off because she thinks people are judging her for supposedly boycotting a visit to see her brother in jail on his 18th birthday.
So what's a girl to do? Blog about it of course.
She rants on her MySpace page:
"Stupid people of the press
Heres how stupid and inaccurate the media can be...
According to the press I didn't show up to my brothers 18th birthday at the jail.
*hes in jail
*Its an important birthday...the big 18!!!
*I'm only a 4 hour drive to Tampa
*He's the most important thing in my life.
They must have thought I didn't show cause they didn't SEE me.
uhh...there's such thing as a back door you jerks.
In conclusion...That goes to show you that you can't believe anything you watch on TV or read in magazines. Cause people will make up BS without even knowing the facts. Hey Media! Why don't you gather facts, check them, and then give the public the truth? That might work. Oh no...I forgot. You make too much money telling LIES.
Needless to say, I WAS there for my brother on his birthday because he is my best friend and NOTHING comes before family."
You guess the celebutard.
