On April 11, he had a highly publicized run-in with a homeless man in downtown L.A. He and his friend were waiting for a cab after their car ran out of gas. He told The Hollywood Reporter about what happened next:
A homeless guy, or vagrant, tapped on the driver's-side window. Before I knew it, he [the friend] was out of the car, and they started fighting. I saw that [the homeless man] was carrying some sort of a knife, or shank, and I got out of the car to disarm him. At some point, he dropped the knife, and I got hit pretty hard in the face -- and almost instantly the police were there to break up the fight.
