NEW YORK - A judge has given Shia Labeouf six weeks to agree a deal with prosecutors over his disorderly conduct case.

The Transformers star appeared in court in New York City on Thursday morning for a hearing connected to his arrest at a Broadway theater last month.

LaBeouf, 28, who was detained by police for disrupting a production of Cabaret, has denied charges of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass, but his lawyer G. Robert Gage is attempting to work out a plea deal.

During the hearing on Thursday, the judge overseeing the case at the Manhattan court gave both sides six weeks to agree a resolution and ordered the star back for another hearing on Sept. 10.

After the Broadway outburst, LaBeouf enrolled in an outpatient rehab program to tackle his drinking.
