Shia LaBeouf Opens Up About Addiction As He Apologises For Violent Outburst
Actor Shia LaBeouf has issued an apology, saying that he’s “deeply ashamed” of the way he behaved during a recent altercation with the police.
While the 31-year-old was being arrested for drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction, he became abusive towards a black police officer, saying:
“You got a president that don’t give a fuck about you, and you’re stuck in a police force that doesn’t give a fuck about you. You want to arrest white people who give a fuck? Who ask for cigarettes?”
He reportedly also said, “you’re going to hell, straight to hell, bro”, before suggesting that he was “arrest[ed] for being white.”
After video footage of the incident was obtained by TMZ, LaBeouf issued an apology, explaining that “I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety.”
