Shia LaBeouf couldn’t believe his ill luck when a video of him using racial slurs on a black police officer hit the internet.
The Hollywood actor, who says he’s “deeply ashamed” of his conduct, made the utterances last weekend when he was arrested for drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction, in Savannah, Georgia.
In the videos obtained by TMZ , Labeouf could be heard making statements like “You’re going to hell, straight to hell, bro” and claiming he was “arrest[ed him] for being white”.
The actor has apologised to the arresting officers and admitted that he’s battling alcohol addiction.
LaBeouf described his outburst as a “new low”.

The police, via a statement, said Labeouf was using “offensive language in front of children and being disorderly”.
“He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer,” said the Savannah-Chatham metropolitan police department.
