Shia LaBeouf has finally issued an apology for his behaviour following his arrest in Georgia on Saturday morning.
The Transformers actor was arrested for public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, and obstruction, and told the black arresting police officer that he would go to hell because of his skin colour.
His behaviour was captured on video, and can be seen over at TMZ…
“I am deeply ashamed of my behaviour and make no excuse for it,” he wrote in a statement which he shared on Twitter.
My actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers
“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 grateful for their restraint. The severity of my behaviour is not lost on me.
I have been struggling with addiction publicly for too long
“My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst,” he added, before referencing his alcohol addictions and promising to work harder on his sobriety.
“I have been struggling with addiction publicly for too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
Let’s hope that he has learnt from his mistakes and will take further action to get better and ensure this kind of thing never happens again.
