According to E! News, Shia LaBeouf was arrested around 4 a.m. Saturday morning on suspicion of public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction in Savannah, Georgia.
The actor reportedly approached a bystander and a police officer nearby for a cigarette. When he wasn’t given one, he became “disorderly” and began using “vulgar language.” He then refused to leave and became “aggressive” toward the officer. He then ran to a nearby hotel when the officer attempted to place him under arrest. He was placed in handcuffs in the hotel lobby.
Now, an explicit video has surfaced, which shows the 31-year-old actor’s arrest and his behavior during and afterward.
“I have rights. I’m an American. You got me arrested in my hotel for doing what, sir?” the video begins with LaBeouf in the back of the cop car. “I’m a f–king American. I pay taxes. Get this s–t off my f–king arms.”
“Who are you fighting for?” he asked the officer during the arrest. “You got a president who don’t give a f–k about you, and you’re stuck in a police force who doesn’t give a f–k about you. So you want to arrest white people who give a f–k? Who ask for cigarettes?”
