Shia LaBeouf Tells Cop He's Going To Hell Because He's Black

The actor went on a racist tirade while being held in custody after being arrested for public drunkenness and more.

Things have not been going well for actor Shia LaBeouf. The Transformers star was reportedly arrested over the weekend in Savannah, Ga. for public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction. Today (Jul. 12), TMZ obtained footage of LaBeouf going on a racist tirade against a black cop while in custody.

While sitting down with officers in the video, LaBeouf, 31, can be heard saying that the black officer who arrested him would be going "straight to hell," and that he was arrested only because he was white.

"You're going to hell, straight to hell, bro," he says at the Savannah Police Headquarters. When the second officer asks the actor why his partner is going to hell, he says it's because he's a black man.

“It really doesn’t matter what you charge me with,” he continues. “It’s your word against my word.”

In the police car during his weekend arrest, LaBeouf reportedly yelled "You got a President who don't give a sh*t about you, you're stuck in a police force that don't give a f**k about you, and you want to arrest white people who give a f**k, who ask for cigarettes?" He also said that he would "blow [their] sh*t up" if he "had a gun."

LaBeouf issued a statement after the footage found its way to the public, calling his behavior "problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst."

T.I. Grills Candace Owens On Trump's 'MAGA' Slogan At The Revolt Summit

T.I. had one pressing question for Candace Owens during the 2019 Revolt summit that Owens couldn't quite answer. The two-day conference held in Atlanta brought together music executives, activists, and entertainers to discuss hip-hop, it's power, the current climate of the genre and to network. However, with the 2020 presidential elections nearing politics were also a hot topic.

For Saturday's (Sept. 14) Hip Hop and Politics panel hosted by Jeff Johnson, T.I. asked the conservative commentator to explain Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "When you say Make America Great Again, which period are we talking about?" Tip questioned. "[Is it] the period when women couldn't vote? The period when we were hanging from trees? The crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make great again."

The 30-year-old Connecticut native said: "I actually think that I would totally rock a hat right now that says Make Black America Great Again," which prompted T.I. to interject and restate the original question.

"Which period was America great that we're trying to replicate? Which era was it? Tell me." T.I. questioned. With an excited audience, Owens' attempt to explain Trump's slogan didn't go so well.

Felicity Huffman Sentenced To 14 Days In Prison For College Admissions Scandal

Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday afternoon (Sept. 13) to 14 days in prison, CNN reports. Judge Indira Talwani also tacked a $30,000 fine and 250 hours of community service onto Huffman's sentence. Additionally, she faces one year of supervised release.

“I am deeply ashamed of what I have done,” Huffman reportedly said to the judge. “At the end of the day I had a choice to make. I could have said 'no.'”

The 56-year-old also shared a conversation she had with her daughter concerning the college admission scandal. Huffman revealed that her daughter said, “I don’t know who you are anymore mom? Why didn’t you think I could do it on my own?” Huffman's child with actor William H. Macy has a learning disability, which prompted Huffman to engage in the scam in an effort to allot more time for her to take the SATs.

“I felt an urgency which built to a sense of panic that there was this huge obstacle in the way that needed to be fixed for my daughter’s sake,” she wrote in a previous statement. “As warped as this sounds now, I honestly began to feel that maybe I would be a bad mother if I didn’t do what Mr. Singer was suggesting.”

Huffman will report to prison in six weeks. In April 2019, the actress pled guilty to paying $15,000 to William "Rick" Singer to increase her daughter's SAT scores.

Further details for this story are pending.
