Police were called to Tom Cruise's Los Angeles home over the weekend after a member of the actor's security team spotted an intruder on the grounds.
A guard saw a man "climbing a fence to gain access to the property" and he used a stun gun to detain him as police raced to the scene.
The Associated Press reports a 41-year-old man, who lives in an adjacent property, was treated at a nearby hospital before being taken into custody for trespassing.
Cruise was not at the home in Beverly Hills when the drama occurred.
Police say the man was intoxicated at the time of the incident and that "he may haev confused himself and entered the wrong property."
