Zac Efron was involved in an altercation with several people in the early hours of Sunday morning, TMZ reports.

Efron, who police say got hit in the mouth by a transient, was allegedly in a sketchy area of Los Angeles when the fight occurred. According to TMZ, law enforcement broke up the brawl involving Zac, a man presumed to be his bodyguard and at least three other individuals.

Police questioned Zac who claimed to have run out of gas and was waiting for a tow truck to arrive. Efron said while waiting for the tow truck, they (he and his bodyguard) threw a bottle out of the window and it smashed on the pavement near a group of homeless men. A source tells TMZ, Zac was “obviously intoxicated.” No one was arrested as the incident was viewed as “mutual combat” by the police.

The 26-year old Neighbors actor entered rehab twice last year for cocaine abuse. He also suffered a broken jaw due when he “slipped in a pool of water” while at home.
