Former Disney hearthrob Zac Efron ended up in a very bad area of downtown L.A. just after midnight Sunday and got punched in the mouth by some sort of sketchball. Cops who were on patrol under the Harbor Freeway saw Zac and his bodyguard get in a huge brawl with at least 3 other people.
After breaking up the fight, cops questioned Efron. Apparently, he insisted that they had run out of gas and were sitting in the car. He claimed that 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 dudes. Those dudes then ended up confronting Efron and the fight ensued.
Now, we’re not the type of people point any fingers here but let’s try and add up everything going on here… Efron was in rehab for cocaine addiction not once, but twice last year. We can’t help but guess that Efron and his bodyguard were down in the sketchiest of LA neighborhoods buying some illicit substances to keep the party going, especially since one source on the scene on Sunday said that Efron was, “obviously intoxicated.” Listen, Zac- we almost have to give you props for actually going down there instead of just sending an assistant to do your dirty work for you.
No one was arrested in the brawl but Efron should really watch himself because before he knows it, he might just be another Hollywood story gone wrong. Let’s just hope he doesn’t start hanging with Bieber. Those two together have trouble written all over them.
