Machete star Danny Trejo found himself in the middle of a chaotic scene at the Sunland-Tujunga Independence Day Parade in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 4. The 80-year-old actor reportedly got out of his vintage convertible to confront an individual in the crowd who he believed had thrown a water balloon at him.

A video shared on social media captured the moment when Danny approached the man and threw a punch, sparking a heated altercation. The man retaliated, but his punch missed, causing the actor to stumble. The situation escalated as a larger brawl broke out, with punches being thrown and even a foldable beach chair being used as a weapon.

Although bystanders attempted to intervene and diffuse the situation, the conflict reportedly lasted nearly 10 minutes before police finally arrived on the scene. Despite the chaos, no arrests were made.

Witnesses at the parade explained that throwing water balloons is a common tradition during the event, but the actor’s reaction was unexpected due to the nature of the parade. One parade-goer mentioned, “The reason why Danny was so infuriated was because usually people don’t throw water balloons at fancy cars when they come by.”

Known for his tough guy roles in Hollywood, Danny Trejo has built a reputation as a versatile actor, often portraying villains and antiheroes. His most iconic role as Machete in various Robert Rodriguez films has solidified his status as a fan-favorite in the industry.

The incident at the Fourth of July parade may have caught many by surprise, but it serves as a reminder that even tough guys like Danny Trejo can find themselves in unexpected confrontations, both on and off the big screen.
