Shia LaBeouf doesn't have an uncontrollable urge to drink… until someone hands him a drink, that is.

The actor's lawyer says that while Shia is not an alcoholic per se, he does have an addiction in that once he starts drinking, he can't stop — which is exactly how the 31-year-old winded up getting arrested on Saturday.

But this time, it looks like Shia is determined to turn things around!

Not only is he well aware of his substance abuse, he's vowed to not touch an alcoholic beverage until he finishes shooting his movie The Peanut Butter Falcon.

Shia LaBeouf Was 'Incredibly Professional' On Set Leading Up To Belligerent Arrest

| Filed under: Film FlickersLegal MattersBusted!Shia LaBeoufDisneySad SadAddiction

Shia LaBeouf

We really hope Shia LaBeouf gets the help he so clearly needs.

As we reported, the troubled 31-year-old went on a NSFW rant while being arrested in Savannah, Georgia this past weekend — and although the actor has since apologized for his vulgar behavior, more troubling footage has dropped of the Transformers alum verbally attacking both white and black cops.

Although we've seen this behavior time and time again from the former Disney darling, the production crew on set of his upcoming movie, The Peanut Butter Falcon (which is filming in Savannah), says Shia was nothing but "incredibly professional," "well-prepared," "so nice," and "said hello to everyone on set" leading up to his arrest.

According to TMZ, Mia Goth's husband showed no signs of ever being drunk or hungover for weeks during the shoot, which is about halfway done.

It's said the child star continued filming on Monday after being obtained by police, and everything that went down was considered "no big deal."

So you can imagine the fallout was a bit of a shock to the crew!

We'll keep you updated on where this goes from here…

Jenelle Evans had hit her 'low point.'

Jenelle Evans is putting her heroin past behind her!

As we previously reported, the Teen Mom 2 star admitted to shooting up the drug "four or five times a day" in an excerpt from her new memoir, Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom.

Now, the momma of three is telling E! News all about her addiction and "low point."

Opening up to Ken Baker, she shared how she nearly overdosed!

"I think my low point was with my drug issue and the whole heroin thing. I almost overdosed and died. I was trying to run away from my problems. God knows what might have happened. I might have been dead."

Shit!

And Jenelle continued, adding it was her withdrawal which led her to seek help, and eventually check herself into a New Jersey hospital:

"When I started withdrawing for the first time in my life, I was like, ‘This is not the way I want to live. This is scaring the shit out of me, and I need to get help right now.'"

Addiction is no easy battle to overcome!

While it seems like the starlet is in a much healthier place, she's struggling with an entirely different issue: getting full custody of her son Jace from her mom!

"I think our relationship’s lost. I don’t think it’s ever really coming back at any time. [Barbara] knows if she gives [Jace] to me that I will cut her off. That will be it. And she’s scared."

You can catch more of Jenelle's interview on Wednesday night at 7 and 11 p.m.!
