‘Transformers’ fame actor Shia LaBeouf arrested on drunkenness charge

Police have arrested actor Shia LaBeouf in Savannah, Georgia, and charged with obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office says the 31-year-old was arrested at 4 a.m. Saturday by the Savannah Police Department and released.

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.

In addition to the public drunkenness charge, he also was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction. Further details surrounding the arrest were not immediately available.

This wasn’t the first time the star of the “Transformers” films had trouble with the law. It’s his second arrest this year. The first one came in late January when he got into an altercation over his anti-Trump art installation, which at that time was housed at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, N.Y. It has since moved to Liverpool, England.

In a statement the police said, the actor became aggressive toward the officer. “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.”
