'Dis­or­derly' US ac­tor Shia LaBeouf ar­rested in Ge­or­gia

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

US film star Shia LaBeouf was ar­rested in Ge­or­gia early Satur­day after be­com­ing "ag­gres­sive" to­wards a po­lice of­fi­cer and be­hav­ing in a "dis­or­derly" fash­ion, author­i­ties said. Ac­cord­ing to the Sa­van­nah-Chatham Metropoli­tan Po­lice De­part­ment, LaBeouf was ar­rested in the early hours after he ap­proached a by­stander and a po­lice of­fi­cer, ask­ing for a cig­a­rette. He was re­leased hours later after post­ing a $7,000 bond, Pete Ni­chols, spokesman for the Chatham County Sher­iff's De­part­ment told AFP.

It is the lat­est in a se­ries of ar­rests for "Trans­form­ers" star LaBeouf, with at least one past in­ci­dent also in­volv­ing "dis­or­derly" be­hav­ior. "When LaBeouf wasn't given a cig­a­rette, he be­came dis­or­derly, us­ing pro­fan­i­ties and vul­gar lan­guage in front of the women and chil­dren present," the po­lice de­part­ment said in a state­ment. The of­fi­cer told to LaBeouf to leave the area but he re­fused and grew ag­gres­sive, the state­ment read. When the of­fi­cer at­tempted to place LaBeouf un­der ar­rest, he ran to a nearby ho­tel be­fore even­tu­ally get­ting ar­rested in the lobby.

LaBeouf was charged with ob­struc­tion, dis­or­derly con­duct, and pub­lic drunk­en­ness. LaBeouf is in Ge­or­gia to film the "Peanut But­ter Fal­con," a movie co-star­ring Dakota John­son. Also known for films such as "Dis­tur­bia" (2007) and Lars von Trier's "Nym­pho­ma­niac" (2013), LaBeouf was ar­rested in Jan­uary when he al­legedly grabbed and pushed a man out­side the Museum of the Mov­ing Im­age in New York, where the film star had set up an anti-Don­ald Trump in­stal­la­tion. LaBeouf has said the charges against him were sub­se­quently dropped. He was also ar­rested in June 2014 at a Broad­way mu­si­cal after caus­ing a dis­tur­bance in the the­ater.
