Last week, Shia LeBeouf was arrested and charged with public drunkenness. Now, His lawyer is speaking out and saying that the actor wants to "make good."
As reported by TMZ, Doug Andrews, Shia's lawyer, says that the Transformers star wants "to do more than just cop a plea and pay a fine.
He says they are planning something meaningful for the Savannah police and community.
Furthermore, Andrews says that Shia has resolved to not have another drink while he finishes up filming his new movie The Peanut Butter Falcon.
Andrew also said that the film's schedule will not be affected by the star's arrest. Additionally, there were reports from the film's set that Shia has continued to conduct himself very professionally.
Once the film is done, Shia will seek professional help for his issues that led him to the arrest, Andrews also revealed, but he also said that the actor doesn't feel the need to drink, but that his problems emerge when he drinks.
According to reports, in the early morning hours of July 8, Savannah Metro law enforcement officers in Georgia arrested a male subject after he had become disorderly in City Market.
The "male subject" in question turned out to be LaBeouf.
Sometime around 4:00 a.m., the 31-year-old reportedly approached a bystander and police officer somewhere near the intersection of Barnard Street and West St. Julian Street. He is said to have been asking for a cigarette.
Neither the bystander nor the officer had a cigarette for him, and that is when LaBeouf reportedly became "disorderly."
He was reported to be using profanities and inappropriate language in front of the women and children who were present.
The actor was instructed to vacate the premises but refused and became aggressive toward the police officer.
At this point, the police officer attempted to arrest LaBeouf, but he fled the scene and ran into a nearby hotel.0comments
He was arrested in the lobby of the hotel, but it's reported that his disorderly behavior continued even there.
Finally, LaBeouf was charged with "obstruction, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness."
