The Savannah-Chatham police have released body cam footage of the arrest of Shia LaBeouf on Saturday morning, showing the actor shouting explitives at officers while being detained.


LaBeouf, who is in Savannah filming the movie, “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” was arrested on Saturday morning at 4 a.m. on charges of obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Police said LaBeouf approached a bystander and an SCMPD officer near the intersection of Barnard Street and West St. Julian Street, asking for a cigarette.

When LaBeouf wasn’t given a cigarette, he became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present. He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer.

In the body cam footage, LaBeouf can be seen shouting at the officers taking him out of the hotel and yelling expletives as he is taken to the police cruiser. Once at jail, the footage shows LaBeouf continuing to shout and curse at officers. He also shouts at the officers asking why he was arrested.

LaBeouf was released on $7,000 bond.
