TMZ A knife-wielding man dressed up as Tony Montana from the 1983 classic “Scarface” taunted police during a real-life standoff in L.A. … and stayed in character the entire time, TMZ has learned. It all went down at an apartment complex in Hollywood around 10pm Tuesday night — cops were called to the scene to respond to a man wearing a Tony Montana-style white suit (with the big pimped-out collar) who began screaming at people while waving a machete. When cops arrived, a police negotiator tried to convince the man to surrender peacefully — but he responded by screaming various quotes from “Scarface” … while pointing to a DVD copy of the movie he was carrying in his non-machete hand. Sources at the scene tell us the Tony-alike taunted police by calling them, “f**king cops” … and threatening to cut them. After a 6-hour standoff, cops convinced the man to throw his machete down into the apartment swimming pool … but officers were forced to use tear gas to take the suspect into custody.
The picture of this guy is amazing, it seriously looks like a scene right out of the final gun battle in “Scarface”, so I need to know more details of this story immediately. He had to be doing this for attention, right, I mean there is just no chance he got so coked up or had a psychological break and thought he was legitimately Tony Montana. He was far too prepared. Major props to the Montana impersonator for not breaking character for six hours, that shows that he has serious commitment to his role.
I just hope that he yelled my favorite quote from Scarface at the police “What you lookin’ at? You all a bunch of fuckin’ assholes. You know why? You don’t have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin’ fingers and say, “That’s the bad guy.” So… what that make you? Good? You’re not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don’t have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There’s a bad guy comin’ through! Better get outta his way”
