Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested Saturday in Savannah, Georgia, and charged with obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness, police said.
LaBeouf, 31, was taken into custody around 4 a.m., and was released later Saturday from Chatham County Detention Center after posting a $7,000 bond, the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office said.
The actor approached a bystander and a police officer asking for a cigarette, according to a statement from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department. He became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language, when he wasn’t given a cigarette, it said.
He was told to leave the area but refused and became aggressive toward the officer, police said.
“When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel,” the police statement said. “LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued.”
CNN has reached out to LaBeouf’s publicist and manager for comment.
Shia LaBeouf unleashed an epic drunken rant at Savannah, GA police as they took him into custody — and bodycam footage shows him repeatedly calling one cop a “dumb f**k” and a “stupid bitch.”
As we reported … cops tracked down Shia at his hotel and arrested him in the lobby, but he did not go quietly. He yelled at the officer, “I have rights! I’m an American. You got me in my hotel, arresting me in my hotel for doing what, Sir?”
The rant got worse once he was in the police cruiser — “I’m a f**king American, I pay my taxes, get these s**ts off my f**king arm.” He also got racial, telling the black officer … the President “doesn’t give a f**k about you, and you wanna do what? Arrest white people?”
After unsuccessfully begging the cops to let him go … he turned to threats, saying … “I got more millionaire lawyers than you know what to do with, you stupid bitch!”
Shia LaBeouf went on a racist, violent rant in the police car after being arrested early Saturday morning in Georgia.
Shia screamed at the cop, “If I had my gun I’ll blow your s*** up.” And that wasn’t all. He said, “You put your own kind in the f***ing pen.”
As we previously reported, Shia also ranted about being an American who pays his taxes … and on, and on.
