Shia LaBeouf says his be­hav­iour dur­ing ar­rest ‘a new low’

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Shia LaBeouf made a “sin­cere apol­ogy” to the Sa­van­nah po­lice of­fi­cers he railed against when he was ar­rested for pub­lic drunk­en­ness over the week­end in Ge­or­gia, say­ing that he is tak­ing ac­tive steps to se­cure his so­bri­ety. The ac­tor, whose racist, ex­ple­tive-laden ex­changes were caught on of­fi­cers’ body cam­eras and pub­lished on­line by TMZ, posted his state­ment on Twit­ter on Wed­nes­day fol­low­ing his lat­est brush with law en­force­ment. LaBeouf, 31, said he was “deeply ashamed” of his be­hav­iour. LaBeouf un­leashed a ver­bal as­sault dur­ing the ar­rest and taunted the of­fi­cers dur­ing the book­ing process. “My out­right dis­re­spect for author­ity is prob­lem­atic to say the least, and com­pletely de­struc­tive to say the worst. It is a new low,” LaBeouf con­tin­ued in his apol­ogy.
