During his rants, LaBeouf appears to bring up race a number of times, alleging that one officer‚Äôs wife watched porn featuring ‚Äúblack dick,‚ÄĚ and telling one cop that he was ‚Äúespecially‚ÄĚ going to hell, specifically because he was a black man. LaBeouf‚Äôs apology thanks the officers for their restraint while dealing with him.

In the note, LaBeouf characterized his actions as a consequence of addiction and problems with authority. (He also called the incident a ‚ÄĚnew low,‚ÄĚ and expressed his hope in securing his sobriety in its aftermath.) He was reportedly arrested after initially asking a police officer for a cigarette, before cops say he quickly became abusive and disorderly.
