Hollywood actor, Shia LaBeouf has been arrested in the early hours of Saturday at Georgia for constituting public nuisance after heavy drinking to the extent that he dared to harass a police officer.
The 31-year-old “Transformers” star was taken to the Chatham County Jail around 4 a.m. ET by the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, and was charged with public drunkenness, obstruction and disorderly conduct. His booking record shows his bond was set at $7,000.
Before his arrest, police said that LaBeouf approached a bystander and an officer to ask for a cigarette.
