I guess our nation’s capital is the wrong city to get the late night munchies:
TMZ has learned Kal Penn — aka Kumar from that “White Castle” movie — was robbed at gunpoint early this morning while walking in a neighborhood in Washington D.C.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Penn claims a man carrying a gun approached him around 1:20 AM and took his wallet and other personal property. (The full post is here.)
The news broke earlier this month that Penn is leaving his post at the White House to resume his acting career.
Update: Penn’s agent confirms the mugging to The Hollywood Reporter.
