Shia LaBeouf has once again landed himself in trouble as the actor has been arrested on suspicion of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct according to Chatham County Sheriff’s Office jail records.

The 31-year-old actor was arrested yesterday in Georgia around 4 am ET by the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Police said LaBeouf became furious after he was refused a cigarette by someone he approached. An officer was nearby.

“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. When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel,” Police said.

“LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behaviour continued.”

This is not the first time LaBeouf has been arrested for allegedly being drunk and disorderly in public. “The Transformers” actor was arrested in 2014 after he disrupted a Cabaret performance in New York.
