UPDATE: The police tell TMZ that Lewis is believed to have been on meth or PCP. Witnesses say he showed "super-human strength" and was "phenomenally strong" in trying to fight off the two men outside this house.
Neighbors also say he used to reside there and then moved away. They also describe him as a "nice guy."
This story will probably make its way into all the Hollywood Babylonish books that I own every single one of.
