Shia LaBeouf arrested for public drunkenness

Published By Alexa Caruso on Jul 10, 2017

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf, the eccentric 31-year-old actor best known for films such as Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was arrested at 4 a.m. on July 8th in the lobby of a hotel in Savannah, Georgia.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shia became "disorderly" after a stranger denied his request for a cigarette. Police say the actor began "using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present." When he was told to leave, he refused and became aggressive toward an officer. He then ran to a nearby hotel to avoid being arrested.

Police quickly caught up with Shia and charged him with public drunkenness. He was later released from jail after posting $7,000 bond. He also faces charges of obstruction and disorderly conduct. The actor is in Georgia filming his new movie, The Peanut Butter Falcon, and has yet to comment on the situation.

This is the second time this year the actor has been arrested. Back in January, Shia was alleged to have assaulted a man at his controversial anti-Trump art installation at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City.

The installation involved a live-stream camera that recorded members of the public saying the words “he will not divide us” as they walked by. The installation was later moved to a museum in Liverpool. ~Alexa Caruso

    Somehow I'm not surprised to hear this. Can he say "REHAB"? I think it's about time for him to get his life in order

    have no words for a guy that puts a paper bag over his head and say on it I'm not famous and this wouldn't come as a shocker, just other person with the fame that think they can do what ever they want and not think they will pay for their actions, now who in the film industry will touch this guy to make a movie,Shia LaBeouf had the opportunity in a position some male and female actors wish they had and with his foolish is can be taken all a way

    This article is somewhat curious. He was arrested at 4:00 am and there were children around? What parents bring their children out st 4:00 am?

    I hope he gets it together. I don't want to read in a few years that he's died much too young from drug and alcohol abuse, like so many other celebrities.
