Shia LaBeouf sustained minimal injuries late last night on the set of his current film, ‘American Honey,'” said the film’s producers in a statement. “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 tomorrow.”

LaBeouf was sent home after a brief hospital visit. According to TMZ, which first reported the news, he received 20 stitches and 13 staples. The actor is scheduled to return to shooting the film on Thursday.
