Shia La Beouf has apologised after footage emerged of him using racially charged language towards a black policeman after he was arrested for public drunkenness over the weekend.
The troubled 31-year-old sported a burly beard beneath his faded red cap, dirty T-shirt, and denim cut-offs for the scene.
When filming began June 19 on The Peanut Butter Falcon, the filmmakers shared a grassy snap captioned: 'Good first day with these two.'Zack Gottsagen makes his big-screen acting debut as Zak, 'a young man with Down syndrome runs away from home to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler.' Fifty Shades' Dakota Johnson (as Eleanor) and two-time Oscar nominee Bruce Dern (as Carl) also appear in the Mark Twain-inspired drama.
La Beouf's sighting came two days after his sixth arrest - this time for obstruction, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness.
La Beouf also said he had been coping with addiction publicly for too long and was making efforts towards getting sober.
“I am deeply ashamed of my behaviour and make no excuse for it,” the 31-year-old said in a Twitter post. I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps towards securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes”.
