Actor Shia LaBeouf has been released from a Georgia jail after posting $7,000 bond on charges of public drunkenness.

The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office says the 31-year-old was arrested at 4 a.m. Saturday by the Savannah Police Department and released.

In addition to the public drunkenness charge, he also was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction.

The actor was arrested and charged with public drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction early Saturday in Savannah, Ga., after no one in the downtown area would give him a cigarette, Savannah-Chatham Police said in a statement.

LaBeouf approached a bystander and a police officer downtown around 4 a.m. and when no one would provide him with a cigarette, he started “using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present,” according to the report.

The 31-year-old became aggressive towards the officer and ran to a nearby hotel when the officer tried to arrest him. He was then arrested at the hotel after additional disorderly behavior, police said.

He was released at 11 a.m. on $7,000 bond.The actor was recently filming his new movie “The Peanut Butter Falcon” in Savannah.

It’s his second arrest this year. The first one came in late January when he got into an altercation over his anti-Trump art installation, which at that time was housed at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, N.Y. It has since moved to Liverpool, England.

In 2015, he was cuffed in Austin, Texas, also for public intoxication. His arrest at the time came just one month after he avoided any bad behavior as part of a March 2015 plea deal related to a drunken outburst at a New York performance of “Cabaret.”

LaBeouf had an outburst during the middle of the show where he shouted and slapped star Alan Cumming’s behind. The former Disney Channel star then sparred with security and cops at the event and was even accused of spitting at police as they took him into custody.
