Shia LaBeouf was arrested in 2017 during the making of his movie, 'The Peanut Butter Falcon' for being drunk in public and disorderly. The drunken stupor and arrest because of his actions happened in Savannah, Georgia. He asked an innocent bystander and a cop for a cigarette and when they refused him one, he started screaming obscenities at them in public.
The police officer who was there at the time and would later be the one to arrest LaBeouf told him to leave. When he refused to leave and kept screaming curse words and obscenities at them and everyone around, the officer attempted to arrest him. However, LaBeouf started running away and made the police chase him back to his hotel room where he was finally caught and arrested. That night, he was charged with disorderly conduct, obstruction, and of course, public drunkenness.
Because of the arrest, LaBeouf thought his career 'was over' and chose to move on to something else, signing up for the Peace Corp. He said he was prepared to leave his public life behind.
