Actor and bodyguard are viciously attacked in street brawl

Heartthrob actor Zac Efron was attacked during a street brawl when his car ran out of petrol in a dodgy area of downtown LA.

Zac reportedly got punched in the face during a scrap with at least three very unsavoury characters in a downtown area which is said to be plagued with drug dealers and gangs.

Even the High School Musical star’s bodyguard couldn’t protect him from the digs as the pair were outnumbered.

When questioned by cops, Zac told them the fight kicked off when he throw a bottle out of the window of his car, which had run out of petrol, and it smashed on the pavement near the group of men.

The actor said that two of the men took on his bodyguard and when Zac got out of the car to help, he got an almighty blow to the mouth.

Zac said, “It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life.”

Sounds bad, but a witness said that the actor was clearly drunk when the brawl took place, and no arrests were made as the incident was seen as ‘mutual combat’.

Maybe be more careful next time Zac.
