LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Shia LaBeouf pleaded guilty in a Georgia court on Thursday to one count of obstruction and was sentenced to community service and a year of probation following his July arrest on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

LaBeouf, 31, pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct and not guilty to public drunkenness, according to Savannah court records. He was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service, anger management, drug and alcohol evaluation and was fined $2,000.

Representatives for LaBeouf did not respond to Reuters request for comment.

The actor, best known for playing Sam Witwicky in the Transformers franchise, was arrested in the lobby of his hotel in downtown Savannah in July after he became unruly.

Videos released by police from bodycam footage showed the actor hurling expletive-filled barbs at officers as he questioned the reason for his arrest. He was booked into the Chatham County Jail and released a few hours later.
