Shia LaBeouf pleads guilty to obstruction charge after street outburst

Shia LaBeouf will spend the next year on probation after the Transformers actor pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge of obstruction stemming from a public outburst in Georgia.

The Hollywood star appeared before a Recorder's Court judge in Savannah, where he was arrested on July 8 while staying in the area to film the movie The Peanut Butter Falcon.

Police said LaBeouf became aggressive and began shouting vulgarities in a central nightlife district after a bystander refused to give him a cigarette.

Officers said LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel in an attempt to avoid arrest.

LaBeouf also pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct, while prosecutors dropped a charge of public drunkenness.

The actor's plea deal requires anger management counselling. He must also complete a drug and alcohol evaluation.
