A statement posted on the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police website states that Shia “approached a bystander and an SCMPD officer near the intersection of Barnard Street and West St. Julian Street, asking for a cigarette.” “When LaBeouf wasn’t given a cigarette, he became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present. He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer. When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel. LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued.”
Though still a shocking turn of events, this is not the first time Shia has had a run in with the law — especially with regards to intoxication. In 2014, the Transformers star was arrested outside of a performance of Cabaret at Studio 54 for “drunken behavior.” Prior to that incident, he was arrested in West Hollywood in 2008 for drunk driving. The actor has been taken in on non-alcohol related crimes as well. Shia was arrested for assaulting someone during his own protest against President Donald Trump in NYC back in January.
Apart from his arrests, Shia is known for his wild behavior. He was recently seen peeing on the set of his new film, The Peanut Butter Falcon, and screaming at a “racist” bartender in a bowling alley in April. This is a developing story, keep refreshing for updates.
