High School Musical star, Zac Efron was assaulted by a middle-aged man as he left the Apollo in London’s West End last night. It didn’t end in a dance off as many witnesses expected. The Daily Mail says:
“The bespectacled attacker, who was carrying a laptop computer under one arm, was then said to have lunged forward and tried to grab his hair. The startled 20-year-old, who plays Troy in the hugely successful Disney film franchise, is usually followed by crowds of swooning teenage girls. So being attacked by a middle-aged man must have given him a taste of the darker side of fame. An onlooker said: ‘Some guy was just stood near the door where Zac and Vanessa emerged. He just reached over and grabbed the side of Zac’s head. There was no provocation. It all turned into a bit of a mess. ‘He was shouting all kinds of things at Zac. Their security team eventually dealt with it. They had to bundle Zac into a car, but at one point it looked as though the man was going to be pushed into it with him.’”
Some people might think it’s weird that this dude was carrying a laptop, but in his defense, it’s gets pretty boring waiting all that time in a van. I mean, once you’ve looked through a pair of binoculars once, you’ve pretty much looked through them all.
