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

The Chatham County Sheriff's Office says the 31-year-old was arrested at 4am on Saturday morning by the Savannah Police Department and released.

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

Further details surrounding the arrest were not immediately available.

LaBeouf has faced similar charges in the past.

He is in the Savannah area filming his new movie, The Peanut Butter Falcon, which also stars Dakota Johnson.

His latest arrest comes just over a month after the LaBeouf was sued for a bowling alley fight.

The actor was asked to leave Pinz in Studio City, California after an argument with a bartender, who refused to serve him because he was allegedly intoxicated.

The employee claimed Shia hurled racist slurs at him and he has since filed a lawsuit seeking damages for defamation and assault.

LaBeouf was also arrested for assault in January after he was accused of attacking a fellow activist at his He Will Not Divide Us anti-Donald Trump protest in New York.

The charges against him were dropped in March due to a lack of evidence.
