The Hangover - Zach Galifianakis Cuts Back On Boozing After New York Street Encounter

The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis has cut back on his boozing after an altercation with a Jaguar driver and his passenger following a drunken night out in New York City.

The funnyman was walking home when the motorist almost hit him on a crosswalk, prompting angry Galifianakis to slap the car with his hand as it whizzed by.

The driver stopped the motor and he and his pal confronted the actor in the street.

He recalls, "I keep walking... and I turn around and it's two six-foot-six guys... and they both, at the same time, spit in my face... I was so stunned. They walked away... and I remember reaching into a trash can and grabbing a beer bottle, and saying to myself out loud, 'Nobody spits in Zach Galifiankis' face'.

"I threw the beer bottle at the car - and it missed! That's one of the reasons why I decided to cut back a little bit."
