Zac Efron 'Punched In Street Fight'
Hollywood star reportedly explains himself to police after getting assaulted in a rough area of Los Angeles...
Actor Zac Efron is reported to have been violently assaulted after visiting a "skid row" area of Los Angeles after dark.
The former High School Musical star is claimed by TMZ to have been punched in the mouth by a "transient" after he and his bodyguard got into a spot of bother.
The US gossip site wrote: "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 three other people."
Efron reportedly told the police that he had thrown a bottle from his vehicle, which the men believed he had aimed at them - resulting in an angry confrontation.
The 26-year-old star apparently told police: "It was the hardest I've ever been hit in my life."
TMZ claims that nobody was charged because the police regarded the incident as "mutual combat".
