Zac Efron has been punched in the mouth in a violent attack in downtown L.A.

TMZ is reporting that cops were patrolling the  area under the Harbor Freeway when they saw Efron and his bodyguard in a full-on fist fight with three other people.

The police questioned Efron after breaking up the brawl, and he told them that he'd run out of gas and were waiting for a tow truck, and while waiting threw a bottle out the window.

This is what then caused a group of men to attack, once the bottle smashed onto the pavement.

Efron said the men believed the bottle was thrown at them, and started arguing with his bodyguard and when Zac got out of the car to help, was punched in the mouth.

"It was the hardest I've ever been hit in my life," the actor said.

In the area around the Harbor Tunnel, police constantly patrol the area due to the high rate of drug deals and gangs.  Efron was in rehab twice last year for cocaine abuse.

No arrests were made because it is deemed as a "mutual combat".
