Shia LaBeouf is in Georgia for a court appearance stemming from arrest

Shia LaBeouf came back to Georgia following a July arrest on charges of public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction. He'll be fined $2,680, complete 100 hours of community service, sign up for anger management counseling and complete a drug/alcohol screening, Channel 2 reported.

LaBeouf hasn't said much on his Twitter feed since apologizing for his behavior in Savannah, where he’d been filming a movie called “The Peanut Butter Falcon” when he got into a drunken tangle in the city's downtown tourist district.

He said he'd been struggling with addiction and was ashamed of his actions:


As the AJC's Rosalind Bentley reported at the time,  LaBeouf, 31, was arrested at 4 in the morning after he tried to bum a cigarette from a bystander and a Savannah police officer in City Market, then started carrying on when neither had a smoke to offer.

Video shows his antics on while police officers tried to get him under control.
