Today in Zac Efron Is Definitely Not on Drugs: The star of the upcoming looks-kinda-good movie Neighbors mysteriously found himself on LA’s Skid Row just after midnight Sunday and in a full-blown fight with at least three other people. These people were either transients or homeless, depending on who you ask.
When cops arrived on the scene, they found the dude had been cold-cocked by one of the homeless guys. Efron told them, “It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life,” (let that soak in a bit), but no one was arrested because the police found the situation to be “mutual combat.” (Which is the most badass term in the legal system.) From TMZ:
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.
Two stints in rehab, a broken jaw, and a car conveniently breaking down in the area of LA where you buy drugs. We may be looking at the most easily identifiable cokehead in a town full of ‘em. I have a begrudging respect for this man.
