Just when you thought plagiarising former French football international Eric Cantona was the weirdest thing Shia La Beouf was set to do at the Berlin Film Festival, he went and did this.
For the premiere of Lars von Trier’s typically controversial new movie , the actor – who recently claimed his entire life was one, long extended performance art project– took to the red carpet wearing a rather fetching paper bag on his head.
According to police, the incident began unfolding when the Holes star asked a bystander for a cigarette to which he was told no, prompting him to be disorderly, 'using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present.' After he was to leave, police say La Beouf refused and became irate towards an officer. The actor is currently in around the Savannah area filming his new movie, The Peanut Butter Falcon, along with Dakota Johnson.
It's not the Transformers star's first time in a cell, having been arrested five times before.
The 31-year-old actor was arrested in a hotel lobby at 4am on Saturday by the Savannah Police Department and was later released after posting $7,000 bond.
La Beouf was charged with public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction after getting aggressive over a cigarette.
’The footage, which appears to have been edited down, concludes with La Beouf standing against a wall and lamenting that his handcuffs are too tight.'Why am I in custody? ' La Beouf howls from the back of the squad car, 'and you put your own kind in the pen for nothing!
He then goes on, telling an officer: 'You put a white man in the pen, for what, you f***ing b****? 'The Hollywood star then once again brings up his attorney. You're about to meet my lawyer..you'll feel like a stupid, slimy w****.
Enjoy your life, that's your legacy, you f***ing coward.'And even then La Beouf was not quite done yet.
An officer's body camera recorded the actor raving and spewing profanities as he was been processed at the county jail a short time later.
Scrawled across the bag in question in large black letters were the words ‘I’m not famous anymore’, a phrase no doubt referring to one of many erratic tweets he posted as he announced, shortly before the whole art project thing, his ‘retirement from public life’.
