Brolin, who apparently was very drunk, got angry as he was asked to leave a bar when it was time to close and tried to punch a security guard.
A very drunk Josh Brolin apparently got into a bar fight with a security guard, but then they made up and hugged. The amusing incident took place on Friday, November 1 at O'Briens Irish Pub in Santa Monica, Calif.
At that time, a security guard was trying to escort the actor out of the club because the staff was going to close the establishment. Brolin apparently got angry and did not want to leave. In a video obtained by TMZ, he can be seen throwing aimless punches at the security guard.
Another security guard came to help his co-worker. The first guard apparently tricked the actor into believing that they were actually hugging and everything went well. Brolin and the guard later hugged again outside the club as he tried to hail a cab for the "Men in Black 3" actor.
The guard even protected him from a persistent fan. "I got him, I got him. He's fine," the guard said, asking the female fan to leave them.
Brolin previously had a run-in with the law because of alcohol. He was arrested in January after the police found him being drunk on the sidewalk. He was detained until he sobered up. He paid the $250 bail and was not given citation for the arrest.
