After bodycam footage of his arrest went public that showed actor Shia LaBeouf in an apparent drunken rage, LaBeouf took to social media to issue an apology.
LaBeouf posted a message on Twitter calling his actions during his arrest “a new low.” He added: “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.”
LaBeouf was booked for disorderly conduct, obstruction and public drunkenness early Saturday morning following the incident in Savannah, Ga.
People magazine reports: “Video footage from the police station security camera released by TMZ on Wednesday shows LaBeouf telling an officer, ‘You’re going to hell, straight to hell, bro,’ while getting his fingerprints taken. He then tells a black officer in the room that he is ‘especially’ going to hell ‘because he’s a black man.’”
