UPDATE (November 4, 2013):
It looks like bouncers weren't the only ones bearing the brunt of Josh Brolin's wrath over the weekend.
Before taking his aim at the door staff at O'Brien's Irish Pub, Josh decided to swing his SUV by a Del Taco drive through for a quick bite, when he accidentally rear-ended a taxi ahead of him in line. However, instead of apologizing and exchanging information with the driver, Josh decided to start shouting at the motorist, not realizing that the car's passengers were filming the interaction, which was later published by TMZ.
"You're a f—king a—hole!" screamed the star, while getting in the cabbie's face. "You suck as a cab driver!"
While we certainly don’t condone Josh’s behavior, if his lawyer needs a good argument for his actions, we don't think anyone's ever tried the taco defense.
Original story (November 3, 2013):
Here's a relief: No county [jail] for drunk men. Or at least, not for one particular drunk man.
Josh Brolin — star of such films as Gangster Squad and No Country for Old Men — got into a drunken fistfight outside of a bar in L.A. in the wee hours of November 2, according to TMZ.
The incident happened at 2 a.m., just as O'Brien's Irish Pub in Santa Monica was closing up for the night. A bouncer was directing Josh outside, which Josh didn't appreciate.
Once outside, a clearly intoxicated Josh got into a fight with the unnamed bouncer, although Josh was almost too drunk to fight, and his punches mostly miss the target.
Surprisingly, the two men finally make nice and actually hug before parting ways. Then, the bouncer tries to call Josh a cab, but he instead runs off into the night for some reason. Oh, Josh.
This is certainly not the first time Josh has had too much too drink and made bad decisions. He was arrested in January 2013 following a bar fight in Shreveport, LA.
It's been a tough year for Josh, who got divorced from actress Diane Lane in February. Josh — whose father is Barbra Streisand's husband James Brolin — is known for various film roles, including Milk, True Grit, and Men in Black 3.
Let's hope we don't have to write another story like this about Josh anytime soon, or else we just might start referring to him as "Slosh Brawlin'." And nobody wants that.
