Zac Efron Bodyguard Speaks: Actor Saved My Life!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

What was Zac Efron doing on Skid Row last night? 

How did the actor end up getting into a melee with a couple of homeless men?

TMZ spoke to the bodyguard who was with Efron in a shady area of Los Angeles late Sunday night and the man says he and the actor were on their way to a restaurant in Little Tokyo they ran out of gas.

After Efron accidentally smashed a bottle near a few transients, the unnamed bodyguard says the antagonists stabbed him in the face, stomach and chest with a shank-like “spear.”

Zac then got out of the vehicle, vodka bottle in hand, and helped fend off the attack. The bodyguard says Efron saved his life as a result.

TMZ has refused to reveal this cohort's identity, but says he has a history of drug use and violence.

This doesn't mean he can't be speaking the truth, of course.

But many questions are being raised of Efron's state of mind and well-being following this incident because an officer says the star was "obviously intoxicated" and because Efron has spent time in rehab for cocaine addiction.

We'll update this story when more news breaks.

You never know with teenage girls. It's funny. But they're always, most of the time they're pretty respectful, and I love 'em. I'm very grateful.
