As Bravo fans recently found out, there is a LOT of crazy in Savannah. It’s hot down here, y’all and so the crazy is coming out full throttle right now. So this is probably the best place for Shia LaBeouf to blend in at the moment. Yet, he still managed to get himself arrested.
According to media statement by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police, officers arrested a male subject after he became disorderly in City Market in the early morning hours on July 8.
Around 4:00 a.m., Shia LaBeouf, 31, 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.
When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel. LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued. LaBeouf was charged with obstruction, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness. He bonded out this morning on a$7,000 bond.
As you can see, even the police are crazy down here. Why do they mention women and children? I get that it is a very southern thing to expect men to watch their language around women and children, but if there are children at City Market at four a.m. on Saturday morning, we have a bigger problem. Savannah has curfew laws and last I checked 4 am was about five hours past the curfew. This Internet attorney finds him to be way over charged in a city where everyone is a bit drunk and disorderly. We are not a big fan of outsiders down here. If that had been Otis, then Andy would have just driven him home or let him sleep it off in the drunk tank.
Shia has been in Savannah for a bit over a month filming The Peanut Butter Falcon. Paparazzi recently caught Shia peeing on the beach at Tybee Island in between scenes and photos circulated the Internet showing everything he is working with.
According to a press release by Lucky Treehouse Productions, “The Peanut Butter Falcon is an adventure story set in the world of a modern Mark Twain that begins when Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome runs away from a nursing home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler and attending the wrestling school of The Salt Water Redneck. Through circumstances beyond their control Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee with a story of her own to join them on their journey.”
Now that Ashley from Southern Charm Savannah is back on the market, I think this would be an excellent match.
