That’s no way to make friends with the police, Shia LaBeouf.
LaBeouf, who was arrested over the weekend for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in Georgia, called a police officer a “dumb f—” and “stupid b—-,” according to police body-cam footage obtained and published by TMZ on Tuesday.
The “Eagle Eye” actor went on to declare, “I have rights! I’m an American. You got me in my hotel, arresting me in my hotel for doing what, sir?”
And then things got racial, as LaBeouf declared, “You got a president who don’t give a sh– about you, you’re stuck in a police force that don’t give a f— about you and you want to arrest white people who give a f—, who ask for cigarettes?”
“I came up to you trying to be nice, you stupid b—-,” LaBeouf continued. “I came up to you asking for a cigarette, you dumb f—! Why would I ask for a cigarette if I was racist?”
According to the Chatham County Sheriff’s Department jail records, the “Transformers” star was arrested in Savannah around 4 a.m. and booked on suspicion of disorderly conduct, obstruction and public drunkenness. His bond was set at $7,000.
An official at the Chatham County Detention Center confirmed to TheWrap that LaBeouf was detained there and had been released.
The actor is currently in Savannah filming “The Peanut Butter Falcon” with Dakota Johnson and Bruce Dern.
This is not LaBeouf’s first brush with the law. In 2014, he was arrested in New York after disrupting a Broadway performance of “Cabaret.” Following the incident, his rep told TheWrap that LaBeouf was “voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction.”
