“It means a whole lot, bro,” Shia said in disagreement before accusing the Black cop of being racist. “A black man arrested me for being white.”
Once he sobered up, Shia made a formal apology for his disgraceful behavior. “I am deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuses for it,” he said in statement. “My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst.”
He added, “It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom.”
Shia then admitted that he can no longer hide the fact that he has “been struggling with addiction publicly for too long.”
He said in conclusion, “I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
