Actor Shia LaBeouf pleads guilty to obstruction, disorderly conduct charges

He's appeared in the "Transformers" and "Indiana Jones" franchises, but on Thursday actor Shia LaBeouf appeared in a Savannah courtroom to answer charges related to a July 8 run in with the law.

Judge Claire Cornell-Williams ordered LaBeouf to undergo anger management counseling and alcohol evaluation as part of the guilty plea.

LaBeouf was in Georgia filming The Peanut Butter Falcon when the events occurred in a downtown nightlife district of Savannah. He also has to write an apology letter for racist comments he made to police officers during his arrest, reports GossipCop.com. Prosecutors dropped a charge of public drunkenness.

In footage from the arrest, the actor hurled abuse at cops, telling an African-American officer he's going to hell for the color of his skin. LaBeouf asked antagonistically. "You got a president who don't give a (expletive) about you, and you stuck in a police force that don't give a (expletive) about you". "I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes".

At one point during the installation, someone alleged said into the camera, "Hitler did nothing wrong".

His other arrests include a 2007 incident wherein he refused to leave a Chicago Walgreens; a 2008 DUI; a 2014 incident where he disrupted as "Cabaret" performance; a 2015 public intoxication episode in Austin, Texas; and an altercation earlier this year at the Donald Trump protest, according to Entertainment Weekly.
