Well, *that* happened

LA Times has perhaps the most non-sensationalized version of this story, so I'll lead with that:
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 to Temple Street and the 110 Freeway, 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.

Please note that even TMZ has updated it to make it clear that this did not actually happen in Skid Row but a mile away, still not the best neighborhood apparently but all the connotations of that area were incorrectly associated.

People added this:

Hours later Efron was spotted in high spirits Sunday night at the Hollywood Improv's Laffest show.

Noshing on nachos and chicken wings while sipping on green tea, Efron took in comedy from the nine different up-and-coming acts, alongside a male and female pal, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

"The group laughed a lot," the source says. "Zac was a sweetheart to staff. He appeared very relaxed. He and his two friends kept to themselves. He appeared sober and nothing at all seemed out of the ordinary. He did not look injured or different by any means."
