Zac Efron was involved in a fight just after midnight Sunday on skid row in Los Angeles under the Harbor Freeway, reports TMZ. Zac and his bodyguard in a physical altercation with at least 3 other people.
Zac was punched in the face, he told the authorities that he had run out of gas and was sitting in his ride waiting for a tow truck. & While waiting, they threw a bottle out of the window and it broke on the pavement near some transients.
They thought the bottle was thrown at them on purpose so they confronted Zac. Two men went after the bodyguard and when Zac stepped out of his ride to try to help he got thumped in the mouth telling police, ‘It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life.’
The area is a known high-alert area for drug deals and Zac was ‘obviously intoxicated.’ No one was arrested because it was viewed as ‘mutual combat.’ What is happening to all of these Disney stars?!
UPDATE: Zac Efron risked his own life to save the life of his bodyguard, reports TMZ. He and Zac were cruising around downtown LA Sunday at 12:30 AM, when they ran out of gas and rolled to a stop at the bottom of a downtown LA off-ramp.
Zac told cops they had run out of gas and for some reason threw a bottle out of the car which shattered and angered some nearby transients. Zac claimed the transients attacked the man and as Zac went to help him a transient viciously struck Zac in the face.
The transients actually went after him with ‘a spear’ and stabbed him in the face, stomach and chest. He says Zac then got out of the car and swung a vodka bottle at the transients to fend off the attack. He says Zac actually thwarted the attack and saved his life.
So the man says the bottle Zac claimed to have thrown out the window wasn’t really thrown at all. He says Zac used it as a weapon during the attack. The bodyguard has a criminal record for drugs and violence.
