Shia LaBeouf has issued an apology following a gross spate of verbal and racial abuse, which he unloaded during his recent arrest for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
ICYMI, LaBeouf was taken into custody in Savannah, Georgia over the weekend after he attempted to bum a cigarette from a stranger. Things escalated pretty wildly, and police intervened when he allegedly “became disorderly” and dropped some swears in front of a kid.
Footage of the arrest was obtained by TMZ.
TMZ also got their hands on footage of LaBeouf at the police station, in which he can be heard telling a white officer that his wife “probably watches X fucking videos, and shit.
“Like licking a black dick. Don’t you feel fucked up, being white, about that?“Don’t you feel like ‘fuck man, I ain’t got all the goods?'”
In response to the entire incident, LaBeouf now writes that he is dealing with substance abuse issues, and that “I am deeply ashamed of my behaviour and make no excuses for it.
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 gratfeul for their restraint. The severity of my behaviour 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. I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps to securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
