SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - "Indiana Jones" star Shia LaBeouf was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after an auto accident in which he was injured early Sunday, a police official said on Sunday.

LaBeouf was driving a vehicle that collided with another vehicle at 3 a.m. in Hollywood, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Scott Wolf said.

"He subsequently injured his head, knee and hand and was hospitalized," Wolf said.

Wolf said LaBeouf was booked for misdemeanor DUI (driving under the influence) and then released.

LaBeouf's passenger and the driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries, Wolf said, adding that he did not know their identities.

The accident occurred when LaBeouf made a left turn in front of the other vehicle, causing a collision in which his car rolled over, Wolf said.

LaBeouf, a protege of director Steven Spielberg, starred in this summer's box office hit "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

He was arrested last November in a Chicago Walgreen Co. store after he refused several requests by a security guard to leave. The trespassing charge was later dropped after the drugstore asked that the case be dismissed.

LaBeouf's publicists were not immediately available for comment.
