Earlier this month I reported Shia LaBeouf is now working in Savannah, Georgia for his new movie Peanut Butter Falcon. Then, on Saturday actor LaBeouf was arrested for public drunkenness.
LaBeouf was taken into custody around 4 a.m. and was released later Saturday from Chatham County Detention Center after posting a $7,000 bond, according to the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.
The actor reportedly approached a bystander and a police officer asking for a cigarette and became disorderly, used profanities and vulgar language when they did not give the actor a cigarette, according to a statement from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.
LaBeouf was then told to leave the area but refused and became aggressive towards the police officer, according to the Savannah police department.
In a police statement the Georgia police department said “ “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.”
This is not the first time LaBeouf was arrested. In January, he was arrested in New York City after police said he got into an argument with a man during his art exhibit. Those charges were later dismissed. However, He was arrested for public intoxication in 2015 and had a DUI in 2008 in Texas and California, respectively.
In 2014, LaBeouf was charged and plead guilty to one count of disorderly conduct following an argument at a Broadway theater. The actor agreed to get treatment as part of the settlement related to the Broadway incident.
LaBeouf is now filming The Peanut Butter Falcon alongside Dakota Johnson.
The Peanut Butter Falcon centers around a crab fisher as he starts on a journey to get a young man with Down syndrome into a professional wrestling school in rural North Carolina and away from the retirement home where he’s lived most of his life. The movie is written and directed by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz.
