Actor Shia LaBeouf has been released from a Georgia jail after posting US$7,000 bond on charges of public drunkenness.

Having used vulgar language in front of a group of women and children, the officer attempted arresting LaBeouf, according to the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police.

After being told to leave the area, police said LaBeouf refused and became aggressive toward an officer. The cop then tried to arrest LaBeouf, but he fled the scene.

Shia LaBeouf has been arrested in Georgia for being wasted and losing control of himself. LaBeouf is in town filming The Peanut Butter Falcon, an independent film in which he plays an outlaw who helps a young man with Down syndrome pursue his dream of attending a wrestling school. "LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued".

During a red carpet premiere in 2014, the internationally recognised LaBeouf wore a brown paper bag on his head that read "I Am Not Famous Anymore".


The actor was also arrested in January at his anti-Trump art installation, where he was charged with misdemeanour assault.

There was also an incident back in 2008 that got Shia arrested for being drunk in public.

Multiple media outlets reached out to Shia LaBeouf's manager and publicist after he was arrested on Saturday morning, but they have yet to comment or release a statement.

The Transformers star has a number of legal trouble in recent years and has been arrested six times since 2006.
