Shia LaBeouf Uses Award Speech to Thank the Cop Who Arrested Him

By

At the Hollywood Film Awards that took place on Sunday, Nov. 3, actor Shia LaBeouf received a screenwriting award for his work on the semi-autobiographical film Honey Boy. In his thank-you speech, Shia didn’t stick to the usual script — and we can’t say we’re surprised.
