LaBeouf was arrested for public intoxication over the weekend in Texas. As the officer approached Shia and his group of friends, he says he noticed a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" emanating from LaBeouf. The officer also says LaBeouf's speech was "slurred and thick tongued and his eyes were glassy and dilated."
"He became increasingly confrontational, aggravated, profane and verbally aggressive with [the officer] throughout the stop, calling him a 'silly man' three times," according to the affidavit.
LaBeouf got really heated when he noticed a bystander filming the interaction, causing him to puff up his chest and approach the stranger in a "threatening manner." When the officer intervened, LaBeouf redirected his "verbal tirade" back to him, standing within two feet of him and puffing his chest up and down.
Shia also allegedly used some unusual tactics to avoid the arrest.
According to source, LaBeouf initially tried to back away from the cop, and suggested he let him go because they had killed a friend of his.
LaBeouf’s last ditch effort to sway the officer was claiming he’s a member of the National Guard, and barked … “Do whatever the f**k you gotta do!”
