Zac Efron mysteriously ended up in a very bad area of downtown L.A. known for heroin sales. The troubled actor ended up getting violently attacked, punched in the mouth by a mob of transients, reports TMZ.
Cops arrived on scene and broke up the fight. Efron claimed he had run out of gas and was sitting in the car, however, he was accompanied by a professional bodyguard/ driver..
The area where this occurred is rough. Cops are on high alert for drug deals and gangs. One source says Zac was “obviously intoxicated.”
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.”
Law enforcement told TMZ, no one was arrested because they viewed it as “mutual combat.”
