Shia LaBeouf is facing lofty fines, anger management counseling and a drug and alcohol evaluation after pleading guilty to obstruction following his July arrest in Georgia, court records show.
The actor — who infamously unleashed a racist rant against an African-American officer following the arrest — appeared in a Savannah, Ga., courthouse Thursday to make the plea. He also pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge, and not guilty to public drunkenness.
LaBeouf was arrested on July 8.
LaBeouf was required to pay $ 2,680 in fines as a result of the obstruction and disorderly conduct charges, according to Chatham County Court records. The public drunkenness charge was dropped.
The “Transformers” star, 31, was arrested on July 8 after he became disruptive and used vulgar language when a bystander in Savannah’s City Market neighborhood declined to give him a cigarette, police said. LaBeouf then turned aggressive when a cop asked him to move along, and he ran into a hotel lobby after the official attempted to arrest him.
Video later showed LaBeouf telling a black officer he was “going to hell” as he gave his fingerprints at the police station. He also told the officer that his actions were “savage,” and when another cop asked why they were “savage,” LaBeouf replied, “because you’re a black man.”
The former “Even Stevens” star, who went of several profanity-laced tirades that night, was caught in another video telling a cop that his wife probably watches pornographic videos featuring “black d–k.”

LaBeouf later issued an apology for his behavior.
In addition to the fines and the anger management requirement, LaBeouf was placed on a year of probation Thursday and must complete 100 hours of community service. His drug and alcohol evaluation will take place within 30 days of the sentencing.
A rep for LaBeouf did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
