The "Transformers" actor said he was "deeply ashamed of my behavior" and "my actions warrant a very honest apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint", in a statement posted on his Twitter page.

Insider Sources also tell us that while the producer and crew were wary about shooting the film with him on Monday after the incident, that all went according to plan, and he showed "no signs of intoxication, or being hungover".

Savannah-Chatham Police says it started when the actor walked up to a member of the public and a police officer and asked for a cigarette.

Savannah lawyer Doug Andrews told TMZ production will not be interrupted by the arrest or Shia's promise to get professional help for his addiction, a word the former Disney Channel star uses even though he doesn't feel tempted by alcohol.

LaBeouf also wrote of his disrespect for authority, which he called "problematic" and "destructive", as well as his problem with addiction.

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. "I am certain that my actions warrant a very honest apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint", he wrote. "The severity of my behavior is not lost on me", he said. He was also arrested a year earlier for disorderly conduct, harassment and criminal trespassing after he disrupted a Broadway play in NY.

In January he was detained after a confrontation at his anti-Donald Trump art installation in NY.
