Not that kind of publicity the diminutive actor would have wanted, but an accident with a kid was jusy on a bad side, atleast.
Tony Cox — who starred alongside Billy Bob Thornton as his elf sidekick in the ‘Bad Santa’ film — just delivered a terrible gift to an unlucky kid … a foot injury and a busted up bike. The veteran actor struck the boy on his bike Thursday in L.A. as he was turning right onto a street, while the kid was cruising through the crosswalk. As you can see … the collision resulted in the bicycle’s front tire getting pinned under Tony’s ride.
Further reports say the kid suffered an injury to his foot as he was knocked off his Schwinn … but was alert and conscious after the accident. EMTs arrived shortly afterward and he was taken to the hospital … thank God he was wearing a helmet.
