Shia LaBeouf suffered a head injury that required medical treatment while filming his upcoming movie "American Honey" this week.

TMZ reported that LaBeouf, 29, required 20 stitches and 13 staples to head and finger to stop the bleeding on Tuesday night.

The injury came during a scene in which LaBeouf's character puts his head through a glass window. Clearly, the stunt went wrong, and the former "Tranformers" star suffered the consequences. The left side of his head and his right index finger took the brunt of the injury, and he was treated at a nearby hospital in North Dakota.

"Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, 'American Honey,'" his publicist Melissa Kates said, according to NBC News. "As protocol, production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head. He is due back on set [Thursday]."

According to IMBD, "American Honey" features "a teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits."

"Fish Tank" filmmaker Andrea Arnold wrote the screenplay, and is also directing.

LeBeouf's bizarre behavior has made headlines since 2013, when he was accused of plagiarizing his short film "HowardCantour.com." Following the news of the stolen idea, LeBeouf took to Twitter where he posted several plagiarized apologies, apparently in an effort to poke fun at the situation. He then announced he was quitting “public life.”

Two months later, LeBeouf appeared on the red carpet at the Berlin Film Festival wearing a brown paper bag over his head with the words “I am not famous anymore” written on it.

In June of 2014, the actor was seeing crying after police arrested him for smoking cigarettes and yelling obscenities during a Broadway production of “Cabaret.”

This year, LeBeouf was featured in Sia’s “Elastic Heart” music video where he and "Dance Moms" star Maddie Ziegler duked it out in a dance battle
