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