Shia LaBeouf has issued an apology after a video of him being arrested for disorderly conduct was made public.
The video that was released shows a possibly intoxicated LaBeouf making racist remarks during his arrest in Georgia over the weekend.
LaBeouf posted on Twitter: “I am deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuses for it. I don’t know if these statements are too frequent, or not shared often enough, but I am sure my actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint. The severity of by behavior is not lost on me.”
LaBeouf was booked for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct in Savannah over the weekend. In the video he was seen telling a police officer that he was going to hell because he’s Black. Most of the rest of the rant was unintelligible other than he complained that the African-American officer was “arrested me for being white.”
