Shia LaBeouf breaks his silence on his July 2017 arrest in Savannah, Georgia.
LaBeouf was arrested for disorderly conduct, obstruction, and public drunkenness.
According to E! News, LaBeouf had tried to bum a smoke from two strangers, unaware that one was a police officer. After being denied, he became increasingly angry and ignored commands given by the officer. LaBeouf also belittled a black officer stating that he was “stuck in a police force that doesn’t give a f*** about you.”
LaBeouf recently commented on the situation for the April issue of Esquire saying, “What went on in Georgia was mortifying. White privilege and desperation and disaster… It came from a place of self-centered delusion… It was me trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested.”
LaBeouf believes the incident was a turning point in his life with friend and up-and-coming actor, Zachary Gottsagen, being upfront about the situation.
“You’re already famous. This is my chance. And you’re ruining it,” Gottsagen stated.
“To hear him say that he was disappointed in me probably changed the course of my life,” LaBeouf said.
