July 8 (UPI) -- Actor Shia Labeouf was arrested in Georgia for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.

Labeouf, 31, was arrested at 4 a.m. Saturday by the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department and released on a $7,000 bond.

According to the police report, he "approached a bystander and an SCMPD officer near the intersection of Barnard Street and West St. Julian Street, asking for a cigarette. When LaBeouf wasn't given a cigarette, he became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present. He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer."

The officer then attempted to place Labeouf under arrest, but the actor "ran to a nearby hotel" and "was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued," according to the report.

Labeouf was in Savannah to film "The Peanut Butter Falcon," starring himself and Dakota Johnson.

Labeouf was arrested earlier this year for assaulting a pro-Donald Trump protester during the actor's anti-Trump exhibit in New York City. Those charges were dropped in March.

Labeouf has been arrested several times in the past and contributed an essay about his history with the law in a prison recipe cookbook titled "Prison Ramen," written by Clifton Collins Jr. and Gustavo "Goose" Alvarez.

"I have been incarcerated five times," Labeouf wrote in the 2015 book. "The first time I was only 9 years old. It was in Pacoima, California. I was arrested for stealing a pair of Nike Cortezes from a local shop and held for six hours."
