Shia LaBeouf was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in Savannah, Georgia over the weekend. Bodycam footage from the officers who made the arrest surfaced, documenting the profanity-laced tirade Shia went on after he was cuffed and detained in the back of a police cruiser. The actor threatened and belittled the cops who arrested him.
Two more videos from his arrest surfaced late on Wednesday. In one, Shia is getting booked when he tells an African American cop that he’s “going to hell” because he’s a Black man. The comments have been called racist by many, including Piers Morgan, Donald Trump, Jr. and others eager to attack him for protesting President Donald Trump. Shia has now apologized on Twitter for his drunken remarks.
“I am deeply ashamed of my of my behavior and make no excuses for it,” he wrote in a statement. “The severity of my behavior is not lost on me.” Shia went on to call the incident a “new low” for him personally.
“A low I hope is a bottom,” he continued. “I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
Another video of Shia taunting a white officer by claiming the cop’s wife loves “Black dick” was posted by TMZ, as well. The intensely uncomfortable interaction was documented on police station security cameras that were obtained by the gossip site.
