Shia LaBeouf assault charges dropped.

Actor-turned-artist Shia LaBeouf will no longer face assault charges over a January incident at his anti-Donald Trump art installation.

Mr LaBeouf was arrested following a confrontation at his live-streamed video project in New York, and was charged with assault and harassment.

Those charges have now been dropped.

A spokeswoman for the district attorney in New York's Queen's district told US media the case would be dismissed because of insufficient evidence.

Mr LaBeouf's art project, a 24-hour live stream called He Will Not Divide Us, encouraged members of the public to say those words into a camera outside New York's Museum of the Moving Image.
