Shia LaBeouf could pay a hefty price for smoking. A $1,000 bench warrant was issued for the 21-year-old actor after he failed to appear in court Tuesday on an unlawful smoking charge.

The "Transformers" star was cited last month. He was scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles County courthouse Tuesday on the misdemeanor offense, but neither he nor his lawyer showed up, according to court documents filed Tuesday. The document did not contain details on the circumstances or location of the offense.

A message left with LaBeouf's publicist was not immediately returned.

LaBeouf starred on the Disney Channel show "Even Stevens" and can next be seen on the big screen opposite Harrison Ford in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
