Another celebrity is a victim of a crime. This time in the nation’s capitol.
The “White Castle” actor, who recently stepped down from a position at the White House, was robbed at gunpoint early this morning while walking in Washington, D.C., reports TMZ.
Penn told police a man carrying a gun approached him around 1:20 a.m. and took his wallet, along with other personal property, a source told the entertainment website.
Police are investigating the incident.
Earlier this month, Penn ditched his role with the Obama administration — where he served as an associate director the Office of Public Engagement for nine months — for Hollywood so he could resume his acting career.
~Unfortunately in this economic climate anyone can become a victim, however there are certain steps that everyone can take to ensure their personal safety, particularly celebrities.
