Following the latest odd behavior by Shia LaBeouf shortly after his arrest for suspicious disorderly conduct, obstruction and public drunkenness, he has tendered an open apology.
During the early hours of July 8, the actor was arrested by the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police in Georgia because of bystanders’ refusal to give him a cigarette. Consequently, he used vulgar language and displayed aggression when he was ordered to leave the premises by a police officer.
In a report by TMZ, the actor was arrested because of a racist rant where he accused a black cop of being a racist. He shouted at the black cop for arresting him because he’s white, and further said the cop would be going to hell.
After LaBeouf had been released on a $7,000 bond, he took to social media on Wednesday to express his apology. He stated that he’s extremely ashamed of his actions and has no excuses for that. LaBeouf also apologized to the arresting officers, applauding them for their restraint. He also regretted his actions, stressing that his disobedience for authority is indeed a problematic and a destructive one.
In May, a legal action was filed against LaBeouf for assaulting, defaming and yelling at a bartender after he was denied a drink because he seemed drunk already. In his post, he apologized and asked for forgiveness, pointing out that he’s working towards getting cool and not intoxicated.
