Shia LaBeouf Found Guilty on Count of Obstruction in July Arrest

Shia LaBeouf has been found guilty by a Georgia court on one count of obstruction as a result of his arrest back in July, according to the Associated Press. LaBeouf appeared in court in Savannah, Ga., Thursday morning.

LaBeouf was found not guilty on one charge of public intoxication and pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct, for which he will pay a fine of $1,000. As a result of the guilty verdict, LaBeouf will spend 12 months on probation minus time served, and will also be required to complete an alcohol and drug evaluation in the next 30 days and attend anger management counseling.

LaBeouf was taken into custody in July by the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department at around 4 a.m. ET after he was caught causing a drunken commotion in City Market downtown.

Body cam footage from the time of the arrest found LaBeouf unleashing a profanity-laden tirade at his arresting officers.

Shortly after his arrest, LaBeouf released the following statement, apologizing for his actions.

“My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst,” he said. “It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom. I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
