Shia LeBeouf has once again landed on the wrong side of law enforcement after being arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in Savannah, Georgia.

LaBeouf, 31, was taken into custody around 4 a.m., and was released later Saturday from Chatham County Detention Center after posting a $7,000 bond, the Chatham County Sheriff's Office said.

He has since been charged with obstruction, disorderly conduct, and being drunk in public. He became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language, when he wasn't given a cigarette, it said. He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer.

He eventually ran off, into a nearby hotel, and was later apprehended in the lobby.

The Federal Reserve voted to raise its benchmark interest rate by a quarter of a point from 1 percent to 1.25 percent in June. The government said job gains occurred in health care, social assistance, financial activities, and mining.

LaBeouf was filming a new movie in Savannah, Georgia. That time around, LaBeouf was busted for driving drunk in West Hollywood.

In 2015, he was taken into custody in Austin, Texas, for public intoxication and jaywalking in front of police, according to authorities.

The "Transformers" star was arrested in January at his art exhibit - "He Will Not Divide Us" - protesting against U.S President Donald Trump after he shoved a man with divergent views. LaBeouf's rep did not respond to a request for comment. When the officer decided that enough was enough and attempted to place the former child star under arrest, Shia LaBeouf reportedly fled the scene. But as a part of his 2015 plea deal related to a drunken outburst at a NY performance of Cabaret, he has walked the straight line.

The actor has been arrested before for drunken behavior, in NY three years ago and in California for drunken driving in 2008, according to TMZ.
