Shia LaBeouf made a "sincere apology" to Savannah, Ga., police officers he railed against when he was arrested for public drunkenness over the weekend, saying that he is taking active steps to secure his sobriety.
The actor, whose racist, expletive-laden exchanges were caught on officers' body cameras and published online by TMZ, posted his statement on Twitter on Wednesday following his latest brush with law enforcement. LaBeouf said he was "deeply ashamed" of his behavior.
"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," he said.
