Shia LaBeouf has landed himself in trouble once again as the actor was recently charged with two misdemeanors.

LaBeouf was taken into custody while shooting for “The Peanut Butter Falcon” in Savannah, Georgia, Variety reported at that time. A few moments later, a video made its way to social media in which he was seen screaming and cursing at a police officer.

LaBeouf thanked the police officer for arresting him and changing his life in 2019. While accepting the “breakthrough screenwriter” award at the Hollywood Film Awards, the “Fury” actor gave a shout out to the police officer and said that he (police officer) changed his entire life.

“I want to thank the police officer who arrested me in Georgia — for changing my life,” the star said at that time.

In 2015, LaBeouf was also arrested for public intoxication in Austin, Texas. The actor had to spend the night in jail. Based on the affidavit, a police officer said that the actor called him a “silly man” and added that the star became hostile during the arrest.
