Actor Danny Trejo Caught on Camera Fighting During LA 4th of July Parade

Actor Danny Trejo was caught on camera getting into a brawl during a Fourth of July parade in Sunland-Tujunga after he was hit by a water balloon thrown by someone watching the event.

The parade, which started at 10 a.m. Thursday, was heading west on Foothill Boulevard to Sunland Boulevard from Mt. Gleason Avenue when someone in the crowd threw a water balloon at one of the cars moving in the procession.

That car, an old-fashioned convertible, also happened to be parked where 80-year-old Trejo, known for his tough roles in films like “Machete” and “From Dusk Till Dawn,” was sitting.

This prompted the actor to jump out of the car and confront the person who had thrown the balloon.

A fight broke out. Video footage shows both parties hitting each other, after which Trejo is thrown to the ground.

Other people rushed in to break up the fight, but not before the person confronting Trejo punched another man in the face. A large crowd gathered in the middle of the street for several minutes before police finally showed up, a bystander said.

Trejo has not yet commented on the matter.

No arrests have been reported in connection with the incident and no report has been filed, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

In addition to his roles in several cult films, Trejo is respected in the Los Angeles community for his restaurant chains, including Trejo’s Tacos and Trejo’s Cantina. He is candid about his difficult upbringing and often talks about his journey from drug addiction and a life of crime to where he is today.
