Zac Efron was attacked and punched during a brawl in downtown Los Angeles in the wee hours of the morning earlier this week.

Shortly after midnight on Sunday, the actor and his bodyguard were involved in a fight including at least three unidentified people believed to be transients in the area.

Police broke up the brawl and say Efron told them he and his guard had run out of gas and were waiting for a tow truck when they threw a bottle from the car window.

The bottle smashed near the group of transients, who then allegedly confronted the pair.

Efron reportedly told cops that two of the men attacked the bodyguard, leading the actor to leave the car to assist him.

At that point, Efron was allegedly hit in the mouth.

According to TMZ, Efron was “obviously intoxicated” at the time of the incident.

The star was in rehab for substance abuse treatment last year.

No one was arrested following Sunday’s fight.

Efron’s camp has not commented on the situation.
