Zac Efron mysteriously ended up in a bad area of downtown L.A. just after midnight Sunday … and ended up getting violently socked in the mouth by a sketchy transient … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
We’re told cops were on patrol under the Harbor Freeway when they saw Zac and a man he identified as his bodyguard. Cops saw Zac and the other guy in a full-blown melee with at least 3 other people.
After breaking up the fight, cops questioned Zac. He told them they had run out of gas and were sitting in the car. Zac said while waiting for a tow truck they threw a bottle out the window — he never said what was in the bottle — and it smashed on the pavement near a group of transients.
Zac said the transients confronted him and the bodyguard because they believed the pair hurled the bottle at them. Zac says 2 of the transients attacked the bodyguard and when Zac got out of the car to help, he got cold cocked in the mouth. Zac said, “It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life.”
You’ll recall … Zac mysteriously broke his jaw in November, saying he slipped on a pool of water in his home. Zac was in rehab twice last year for cocaine abuse.
The area where this occurred is rough. Cops are on high alert for drug deals and gangs. One source says Zac was “obviously intoxicated.”
Law enforcement tells TMZ … no one was arrested because they viewed it as “mutual combat.”
We contacted Zac’s rep … so far no comment.
Well, well,well look who is finally coming out of hiding after his weird broken jaw. Remember the one where he apparently slipped on a little water then broke it, yeah well look at him now. His jaw is just looking a little bit swollen! That is right ladies and gays, Efron still has the jawline of a Greek God! We can all commence in celebration now!
I am still wondering if he is going to do press an stuff with a broken jaw, he totally should in my opinion. It would be kind of hilarious.
Zac Efron is a Greek God, gorgeous blue eyes, muscles for days, and a jawline made from stone. So I thought at least. So far these past three months haven’t been the best for the gorgeous actor. It was leaked that Mr.Efron had two trips to rehab for coke and alcohol problems and that he wasn’t showing up on set of his movie Neighbors. Anyway the strangest story this year has to be his broken jaw right? Poor little Zac has to have his jaw wired shut for God knows how long because he slipped on a puddle outside of his house? Now let me tell you, I have had some pretty serious falls in my life but breaking your jaw from falling? That doesn’t sound right to me. After doing a little more digging, thanks to TMZ, I learned that he also didn’t call 911 he somehow just ended up in the ER.
Now I am one for conspiracy theories, that is for sure.
Theory 1) Zac was chewing on a jawbreaker and just so happened to fall at the same time, therefor he broke his jaw,
Theory 2) Zac was feening for some coke and clenched his jaw so hard it broke.
Theory 3) My final theory is probably the most realistic one. He was drunk and fell and broke his jaw.
I am really curious to see how this all play’s out since his publicists clearly don’t know how to make a real cover up story. For now I will just sit here and pray that his fantastic jawline doesn’t get fucked up for good.
