On Saturday, July 7, at approximately 4:00 a.m. ET, actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. According to multiple sources, the Transformers star was taken into police custody on suspicion of obstruction, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness.
"He became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present," police said in a statement. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, LaBeouf became “disorderly” after a bystander refused him a cigarette. An officer was also reportedly standing nearby.
"He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer,” the statement continued. “When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel. LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued."
Shortly after he was arrested by the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police with a bond set for $7,000. It is unconfirmed whether he has posted bail.
After the incident, a representative told Entertainment Tonight that LaBeouf, "...understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery," said the rep.
The rep also stated LaBeouf was, "voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction."
Earlier this year, the actor was arrested following an altercation in New York City at his "He Will Not Divide Us" protest/art installation. The actor is accused of attacking a 25-year-old male outside of the museum. The assault charges were later dropped.
