Los Angeles - Shia LaBeouf tried to get out of being arrested by telling a police officer he is in the National Guard.

The 29-year-old Hollywood star, who was originally cuffed for public intoxication on Friday after jaywalking across a busy street in Austin, Texas, called the police officer a "silly man" and said he couldn't be arrested because cops had killed his friend and the Los Angeles Police Department usually let him go for that reason, according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

The bizarre excuse failed to stop the officer from doing his job and the Fury star was reportedly "agitated and confrontational" with both the law enforcer and with someone who was trying to record the incident.

The officer also said he had to stop Shia from trying to attack the person filming him being questioned.

The Nymphomaniac actor eventually gave in after several attempts to get out of being taken to a local police cell. After a final bid to avoid arrest in which he claimed to be a soldier, he appeared resigned to his fate.

He fumed: "Do whatever the fuck you gotta do!"

The Transformers star was subsequently handcuffed and taken to Travis County Jail.
