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.
Oh Mr.Efron what are we going to do with you? What are you doing driving around a place called ‘Skid Row’ and running out of gas? Well I am sure we all have little reasons why we would assume you were there. As most people are aware of at this point Efron has done two stints in rehab for a severe cocaine addiction. Then he broke is jaw after slipping on a puddle outside of his house which made no sense what so ever.
It looks like 2014 has been a tough one of the young actor since his movie ‘The Awkward Moment..’ didn’t do so hot, he broke his jaw, and everyone found out he was a coke head. Now he is getting into fights with homeless people? Come on bro!
I personally love Zac Efron but I see him going down the path of no return. The possible Lindsay Lohan path? Let’s be real if this was Bieber it would be much bigger news. People just hate that kid, with Zac we are all thinking, I hope he gets better. Which I do. I really hope that Zac can really do a whole big turn of his life because he is beautiful and isn’t a terrible actor.
Stop fighting homeless people, stop hanging out at a place called Skid Row and you got this! Maybe you should date Taylor Swift, we all know she wouldn’t be caught dead anywhere near a place called Skid Row.
