"Fury" star Shia LaBeouf and his girlfriend, model-actress Mia Goth, had an argument over the weekend that LaBeouf later said would have turned violent had he not left to catch a flight.

In a video shot Friday and posted Monday by "Entertainment Tonight," LaBeouf, 29, is on a street in Europe with Goth, in her early 20s, who has been in Tubingen, Germany, shooting director Gore Verbinski's horror movie "A Cure for Wellness."

In front of a group of what "ET" identified as German locals, LaBeouf, demanding his backpack, tells her, "I don't want to touch a woman, I don't want to hit a woman, but I'm being pushed." He later tells her, "I don't want to touch you. I don't want to be aggressive. This is the kind of [expletive] that makes a person abusive."

He then insists Goth give him his bag: "Can I have my bag please? I just want my bag . . . Please just give me my bag."

The video cuts later to a car as the locals drive him to an airport and he explains his attachment to the backpack. "I don't have no home. This is my home," he says, poking at it.

At another point afterward, he tells them, "If I'd have stayed there, I would have killed her."

There was no obvious indication if the phrase was hyperbolic or literal. But at a later point, the talk turns to guns. "I have no gun," one of the Germans says. "That's not normal," LaBeouf replies. The German answers, "It's Europe. You can't buy a gun anywhere. You can't." LaBeouf asks, "They don't sell them?"

LaBeouf's representative did not return a Newsday request for comment. A representative for Goth could not be reached.

LaBeouf and Goth began dating in late 2012 after appearing in the ensemble of director Lars von Trier's two "Nymphomaniac" features. LaBeouf previously had a two-year relationship with stylist Karolyn Pho.
