Trejo told TMZ that he physically fine following the scuffle but slammed the drama as "childish" and referred to the individuals who threw the water balloon him as "cowards."

One witness, Stanley Herrarte, told ABC 7 Los Angeles, "This parade is like a thing where you throw water balloons back and forth at each other. The reason why Danny was so infuriated was because usually people don't throw water balloons at fancy cars when they come by."

"Dixie was funny," Trejo told TMZ of his beloved pet. "The smallest dog, and she actually ruled the house. It was like, she would go outside and the other dogs would, kind of, like, fade away. They wouldn’t be right by the porch where we were."

"I swear to God, when Dixie woke up in a bad mood, because she stayed in my room, she would go outside and chase the pit bull into his doghouse. He would be crying in there and she’d sit right in front," he added. "She was unbelievable. She was a great dog."
