In a shocking development, it appears that Zac Efron was involved in a brawl in Skid Row this week.
TMZ reports that the star’s car broke down in the area, and while waiting for a tow truck, a bottle was thrown from the window and “smashed on the pavement near a group of transients.”
Efron and his bodyguard were then allegedly confronted, leading to an altercation in which the actor told police he was punched in the face.
“It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life,” he reportedly told police (via TMZ). No one was arrested as the fight was believed to be considered “mutual combat.”
Efron has shed his Disney image in recent years, starring in more adult fare like “The Paperboy” and this year’s raunch-fest “That Awkward Moment.”
He’ll next appear in another comedy, “Neighbors,” playing the leader of a frat who gets involved in a cat-and-mouse prank war with the new neighbors, played by Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen.
