Shia LaBeouf regrets the problematic behavior that led to his recent arrest.

In a recent interview following his arrest, LaBeouf expressed how sorry he was for making derogatory and racist remarks against the police officers. In his statement, the “Transformers” star acknowledged that what he did was wrong and said that he regrets his actions. “I am deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuses for it. My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom,” LaBeouf told TMZ.

Aside from taking responsibility for his misconduct, LaBeouf also opened up about his addiction and vowed to seek help for it. “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,” he continued.

According to sources, the actor was spotted on the set of his indie film, “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” in Savannah on Monday. It is still unclear how LaBeouf’s statements will affect the production of his film and his future and whether or not he is going to rehab.

Over the weekend, LaBeouf was arrested for his disorderly conduct while drunk. CNN obtained a footage taken by a body camera showing the “Mad Down” star verbally protesting against the officers. “I have rights! I’m an American! You’ve got me in my hotel, arresting me in my hotel, for doing what, sir?” he screamed. “Take these cuffs off, I’m a [explicit] American, I pay my taxes … You got a president that don’t give a [explicit] about you and you’re stuck in a police force that don’t give a [explicit] about you. So you wanna arrest white people who give a [explicit], who ask for cigarettes? I came up to you trying to be nice, you stupid.”

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police told People that the “Fury” star became “disorderly” after asking for a cigarette from the bystander who refused to give one to him. The actor used profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and the children. LaBeouf was asked to leave, but he refused. He instead acted aggressively toward the officers and even ran to a nearby hotel when the police attempted to arrest him.
