New Delhi [India], July 13 (ANI): Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf has apologised for his recent erratic behaviour after he was arrested for disorderly conduct. The 31-year-old actor took to Twitter and shared a note where he wrote he was "deeply ashamed" of his actions in a message posted on social media. He wrote, "I am deeply ashamed of my behaviour and will make no excuse for it. I don't know if these statements are too frequent, or not shared often enough, but I am certain that my actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint. The severity of my behavior is not lost on me." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="und" dir="ltr"><a href="https://t.co/OoUpBpr9vg">pic.twitter.com/OoUpBpr9vg</a></p>&mdash; Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) <a href="https://twitter.com/thecampaignbook/status/885272607678922752">July 12, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> The post continued, "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." According to the TMZ, the arrest included a racist rant, in which the actor accuses the police of being racist, or "a black man arrested me for being white. "He also yelled at a black cop, "you're going to hell, straight to hell, bro." The actor was taken into custody by the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police in Georgia during the early morning hours on July 8 after he lashed out at a bystander for refusing to give him a cigarette. LaBeouf was later released on a 7000 USD bond. In May, the actor was sued for defamation and assault for swearing and yelling at a bartender in a Studio City bowling alley after being refused a drink, because he appeared to be too intoxicated. The 'Fury' star concluded the post by writing: "I have been struggling with addiction publically for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes."
