Once again, actor Shia LaBeouf had been arrested on charges of public drunkenness, this time in Savannah.

According to the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office booking log, LaBeouf, 31, was arrested at 4 a.m., Saturday by the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department. According to Savannah police, LaBeouf tried to bum a cigarette from a bystander and a Savannah police officer in City Market. When neither the officer nor the bystander would give him one, he started cursing and hurling vulgarities in front of other people at the popular tourist destination. The officer told LaBeouf to leave, but LaBeouf got “aggressive” with the officer, according to police.

The officer tried to arrest LaBeouf, but LaBeouf turned around and ran into a hotel lobby. Police chased him and arrested him there.

In addition to being charged with public drunkenness, he was also charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction. His bond was set at $7,000.

LaBeouf is in the Savannah area filming the movie, “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” also starring, Dakota Johnson.

The actor has been arrested before for drunken behavior, in New York three years ago and in California for drunken driving in 2008, according to TMZ.
