Shia LaBeouf Says He’s ‘Deeply Ashamed’ Of His Behavior Following Arrest
Shia LaBeouf took to Twitter this week after he was arrested over the weekend for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
In a video, he is seen swearing at police officers: “I have rights! I’m an American. You got me in my hotel, arresting me in my hotel for doing what, Sir?… I’m a f**king American, I pay my taxes, get these s**ts off my f**king arm.” He then told the black officer arresting him that the President “doesn’t give a f**k about you, and you wanna do what? Arrest white people?”

“I am deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuses for it,” he wrote. “I don’t know if these statements are too frequent, or not shared often enough, but I am certain that my actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint. The severity of my behavior is not lost on me.”
He continued: “My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom. 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.”
