Shia LaBeouf has been arrested for public drunkenness, obstruction and disorderly conduct in the U.S. city of Savannah, Georgia.

The actor approached a bystander and a police officer asking for a cigarette, according to a statement from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department. Police said he began using vulgar language in front of women and children.

The rep also said LaBeouf was "voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction". He was facing public drunkenness, obstruction and disorderly conduct charges.

Savannah Police and the Chatham County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a request for additional comments.

During a red carpet premiere in 2014, the internationally recognised LaBeouf wore a brown paper bag on his head that read "I Am Not Famous Anymore".

When the officer attempted to take LaBeouf into custody, he ran into a hotel lobby. Back in January, LaBeouf was taken into custody after getting into an altercation with a Trump supporter in New York City.

No details have been given about what exactly led to the arrest, either, and while you may be able to infer some of it from his charges, there's still mystery shrouding exactly what went down in Savannah last night and this morning.

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.

LaBeouf was also booked with a DUI in 2008.

The Transformers star has a number of legal trouble in recent years and has been arrested six times since 2006.
