In town to shoot the movie The Peanut Butter Falcon, LaBeouf was arrested for alleged disorderly conduct, obstruction, and public drunkenness.

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.

Officers say that Shia LaBeouf walked up to a police officer and random bystander in the wee hours of Saturday morning in an attempt to score a cigarette. After being denied the cigarette he was seeking, Shia LaBeouf reportedly "became disorderly" by using profanities and vulgar language. "He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer", Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

LaBeouf is now filming The Peanut Butter Falcon, which also stars Dakota Johnson.

He was arrested in October 2015 in Austin, Texas, also for being drunk in public and running through the streets of the city.

CNN has reached out to LaBeouf's publicist and manager for comment.
