Kal Penn, a.k.a. Kumar, robbed at gunpoint in D.C.



Tbd-kalpenn042110 Kal Penn, the once and future Kumar from the Harold and Kumar movies, may have just announced he's leaving the Obama administration to go back to movies, but that didn't stop D.C. from getting to him. The actor was robbed at gunpoint early Tuesday, TMZ reports. Let the conspiracy theories begin.

Cops says Penn reported being held up around 1:20 in the morning. The robber took his waller and other personal property, the site says.

An investigation has begun, but good luck finding out who did it. Being paranoid as we are, we're sure it either has something to do with him leaving his job as director of public engagement, or some scheme by gun nuts to overturn D.C.'s strict gun-control laws.
