Zac Efron

Attacked After Midnight in Downtown L.A.

3/27/2014 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Zac Efron FightZac Efron mysteriously ended up in a bad area of downtown L.A. just after midnight Sunday ... and ended up getting violently socked in the mouth by a sketchy transient ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told cops were on patrol under the Harbor Freeway when they saw Zac and a man he identified as his bodyguard.  Cops saw Zac and the other guy in a full-blown melee with at least 3 other people. 

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. Zac said, "It was the hardest I've ever been hit in my life."

You'll recall ... Zac mysteriously broke his jaw in November, saying he slipped on a pool of water in his home.  Zac was in rehab twice last year for cocaine abuse.

The area where this occurred is rough. Cops are on high alert for drug deals and gangs.  One source says Zac was "obviously intoxicated."

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... no one was arrested because they viewed it as "mutual combat." 

We contacted Zac's rep ... so far no comment.

It's called trying to score some drugs! Why do these rich people f.u.c.k. up like this? They've got the money, send somebody to score your drugs you moron!

If you're all jacked up, hire a limo or stay home... is it the drugs or are they just retarded?

Biggest lie to say is they ran out if gas!!! And they threw out a bottle!! Ok very predictable to see broken glass on streets so sucks for bike riders, but now the reason why there? Sounds like Efron's people tried to score him some crack or whatever drug under the radar last minute that's why Zac was in the car. Now the fight doesn't sound like mutual obviously it was self defense. A bum instigated something with Zac, lord hope it wasn't a black bum,and that's when Zac defended the situation. What is cool is that Zac didn't do the typical celeb thing and stay in the car, though he should have because his new movie and promo is coming up. This could all be a hills too just for promo for the live but Zac is no stranger to the wild side. He's oblivious to the pretty boy soft reputation that Disney molded him into. He's a thug with a gym card and he doesn't mind punches, blood guys and glory in fact he might like it a lot as a fetish.....weird celeb fetishes do exist...

Hahahaha, it's just a matter of time...he will go just like 100`s of other actors who felt entitled to do whatever they want, and end up dying. Just let Hollywood do its thing, and suck the weak and dumb, and just leave it at that

Just a guess... They didn't run out of gas, they ran out of cocaine?
