Todd Bridges might think twice next time before lending a helping hand after he got knocked out over the weekend.
The “Diff’rent Strokes” star recently helped his wheelchair-bound neighbor evict a woman living at the guy’s house in the San Fernando Valley. We’re told Todd’s neighbor had asked him for help in the past, and Todd obliged this time too.
Well, things escalated quickly. Todd and the woman’s boyfriend got into a verbal altercation, and next thing ya know … Todd got sucker punched and laid out. It’s pretty crazy … in this surveillance footage, obtained by TMZ, you can see Todd was totally dazed from the hit.
We’re told the guy fled the scene, but no police report was filed. As for Todd … he tells us in a statement … “No one likes to be sucker punched, but I am glad that I was there to help my neighbor, who was faced with a potentially dangerous situation.”
Todd added, “Much rather it was me, and not my neighbor.”
Great guy, but we gotta believe Mr. D or Mrs Garrett (RIP on both counts) would’ve reminded Willis … no good deed goes unpunished!
We’re happy Todd’s okay, but he should leave evictions to the police.
