Eccentric actor Shia LaBeouf recently thanked police officers for his arrest in Savannah, Georgia, claiming that they changed his life.
LaBeouf, who was arrested in July 2017 for public drunkenness, was filmed cursing at police and causing a scene when they took him into custody.
“I want to thank the police officer who arrested me in Georgia- for changing my life,” he said during an awards ceremony.
While the crowd laughed, the tears in his mother’s eyes made it quite apparent that this moment was much more serious than perceived to be.
The actor went on to thank his sponsor and the fact that he was ordered to go to rehab by the courts- an act that led to the very script he received an award for.
According to the New York Post, LaBeouf earned praise from Robert Downey Jr., who also made a comeback after a brush with substance abuse and law enforcement, respectively.
LaBeouf’s semi-autobiographical film, Honey Boy, tells the tale of a child actor’s troubled progression through life and his relationship with his father.
