Shia LaBeouf‘s driver’s license has been suspended for at least one year as a result of his July 27 car crash, PEOPLE confirms.

The suspension took effect on Jan. 17 because LaBeouf, 22, “refused a chemical test” after officers pulled him over, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. S. Wolf told the Associated Press in July that officers responding found it “immediately apparent” that LaBeouf was intoxicated, and he was placed under arrest.

The actor was booked for a misdemeanor DUI, but the LA. County District Attorney’s Office declined to file charges due to insufficient evidence. At the time, the DA’s office said that prosecutors instead planned to file criminal charges against the other driver, who was found to have run a red light.

Access Hollywood first reported the news of LaBeouf’s license being suspended.
