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.
