Bronson Pelletier was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Twilight star was appearing at a fan convention in Birmingham, England last week when five “drunk hooligans” attacked him in a hotel restroom, he tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
The Twilight event was held at the same Hilton hotel as a large wedding, and it seems that some of the wedding guests decided to take on a Twilight hunk.
“These five drunken hooligans followed me into a restroom,” Bronson says. “They did it because they wanted to jump somebody who was in Twilight.
“Two of the guys tried to choke me,” Bronson adds. “I pushed back and threw them off me.”
Security was on the scene almost instantly, and as the thugs scattered the local police, using Tasers, were on the scene.
