Shia LaBeouf apologized on Twitter Wednesday for a racist rant against Georgia law enforcement who arrested him Saturday for public drunkenness.
The actor said he has been struggling with addiction for "far too long." He said his behavior was a new low. He asked for forgiveness hours after TMZ posted a video of the 31-year-old actor being booked. In that video, LaBeouf accused police of being racist because "a black man arrested me for being white." He also called an officer a "dumb f*ck" and said that he has rights because he's "an American."
"The “Transformers” actor was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction. LaBeouf is in the Savannah area working on a new film, "The Peanut Butter Falcon.”
