Shia LaBeouf Apologizes for Arrest, Admits He's An Addict

Shia LaBeouf has apologized for the actions leading up to his arrest for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and obstruction of justice.

The 31-year-old actor was taken into custody last weekend by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police in Georgia after he allegedly went off on cops while drunk in public.

“I am deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuse for it,” Shia tweeted. “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.”

“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,” he continued. “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.”

According to THR, Shia was back on set of his movie The Peanut Butter Falcon in Savannah on Monday (July 10) and production resumed.
