Zac Efron Attacked in Los Angeles; Drugs to Blame?

by at .  Updated at .

Zac Efron had himself an interesting and frightening Sunday night.

According to authorities, the actor and a man identified as his bodyguard pulled over under the Harbor Freeway in Los Angeles because their car ran out of gas.

While sitting in the vehicle, Efron tossed a bottle out the window and it smashed near a group of transients.

Dazed Zac Efron

Efron told police that two of these men attacked his bodyguard in response and then hit him “the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life” when he tried to help.

Cops were nearby (because this area of Los Angeles is known for drug deals and gang activity) and broke up the melee, telling TMZ Efron was “obviously intoxicated” and not making any arrests because they labeled the incident “mutual combat.”

We have not yet heard from Efron or any of his reps regarding this fight.

Zac mysteriously broke his jaw late last year and has been to rehab twice for an addiction to cocaine.

It's unclear exactly what transpired over the weekend, but it doesn't sound promising for the star's ongoing situation. Let's all wish Efron the best.
