Zac Efron Attacked in Skid Row Area of Los Angeles

Zac Efron Attacked in Skid Row Area of Los Angeles

Zac Efron was attacked over the weekend by a sketchy person after getting stuck in the bad skid row area of downtown Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

The 26-year-old actor and his bodyguard told cops that arrived at the scene that they had run out of gas and were sitting in their car waiting for a tow truck. While waiting, they threw a bottle out of the window of the car and it happened to smash on the pavement near a group of “transients.”

The group of people came over to the car to confront them as they thought the bottle was being thrown at them. The bodyguard then got attacked by two of the guys so Zac got out of the car to help, but then got punched in the mouth.

“It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life,” Zac said to the cops. No one was arrested as the cops felt it was a mutual combat.

Despite the fight, Zac‘s face was looking pretty perfect on Tuesday (March 25) when he filmed a sketch for a secret project alongside Neighbors co-star Seth Rogen and football player Aaron Rodgers. The photo was tweeted (then deleted) by a producer who does stuff for MTV, so perhaps it was a skit for the MTV Movie Awards?

    Well why would they throw a bottle out of a car… stupid idiots. How about showing some responsibility for nature and areas where people live. He propably doesn’t want me to throw my garbage in front of his house either…

    I don’t buy it. TMZ is on his ass since rehab thing. People who are on that page already comment it’s because of drugs. Yeah, no. Cops were there. Zac allegedly talked to them. if he was on drugs, something would be said about it.

    Karyn Says:

    So basically he was in this sketchy area waiting to buy drugs, decides while he’s probably stoned or drunk or both to throw a bottle out of a car window subsequently getting beat up by a bunch of thugs. Nice one Zac, nice one. The ‘ran out of gas’ story, you sold it well my friend.

    That is right people make your judgments before you hear both sides of the story. I forgot to haters there is only one side.

    emily.d Says:

    I still love him, am a huge fan, but all of this bullsh** is starting to worry me as well… What was he doing in such an area at midnight? Why would he throw a bottle out of the car window? (this is idiotic itself) Is it even possible he’s doing drugs AGAIN?

    Oh Zac, get your act together, for real, please. PLEASE.
    Don’t let your fans down, we’re breathing for you, so just stop this sh**, for God’s sake. We don’t really wanna see you end up like the next Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse or Cory. :((

    @OK: You’re beating a dead horse w/ that hater stuff, people is going to believe what they believe it’s what some people do. I love Zac Efron one of my favorite actors in the industry but as a fan I got to be completely honest with myself, he did had drug usage and most likely he did go over there to get drugs. What a handsome rich Caucasian boy doing over in Skid Row **** there no paps over there and who in his little bubble would get caught dead over there yeah right I’m not believing this story at all. I love Zac but he needs to get his **** together I mean ASAP!

    Rocky Says:


    AMEN!! Also, how could you not know you were low on gas? Something’s not right here. Sorry.

  25. 25
    Why? Says:

    You haters are idiots why wait 4 days for this story to come out. With a story like this they shouldn’t have waited four days, that and if you look on his twitter page you can see that there was no sign of him being attacked because if he did there would have been a bruise on his mouth and there isn’t.
