LAPD in Six Hour Stand-off With Machete Wielding Tony Montana Look-Alike

Police convinced him to drop the machete but had to tear gas him to subdue the suspect

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.
