Faces & Names: Efron, transient in altercation

Actor Zac Efron got into an altercation with at least one homeless person early Sunday in downtown Los Angeles after the vehicle he and a friend were driving became “stranded,” police officials confirmed.

Officers responded to the scene around 2:25 a.m. Sunday where Efron, 26, and his friend were waiting, LAPD spokesman Richard French said. Police officials said the officers were flagged down and pointed to the scene by a third party.

Police Cmdr. Andy Smith said there were indications of an altercation, but no details on what transpired were immediately available.

No arrests were made, French said.

Over the past year, the 26-year-old actor has had to deal with a broken jaw he reportedly suffered after slipping in a puddle of water at his home, and address rumors that he has secretly been to rehab on two occasions.

While promoting his latest movie “That Awkward Moment” on “The Today Show” in February, Efron declined to directly address host Samantha Guthrie’s inquiry about the rehab rumors.
