Authorities say a security guard at Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills, Calif., mansion used a stun gun on a trespasser who turned out to be an intoxicated neighbor who may have mistakenly entered the property. Police say 41-year-old Jason Sullivan was shot with a Taser at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at the home. He was then treated at a hospital and arrested on suspicion of trespassing. Police say neither Cruise nor his family were at the home when a guard saw a man climbing a fence to get onto the grounds. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, file)

Poor Tom Cruise.  With Katie Holmes awarded sole custody of their daughter, he can’t get Suri to come over to his house. And now he can’t keep drunk neighbors away from it.

E! Online reports that at 9:35 p.m Sunday night, Cruise’s security guard noticed an intoxicated man trying to scale Cruise’s fence, and in response, shot him with a stun gun. Although police arrived to arrest the intruder, he had to be taken to a hospital first to be treated for injuries.

Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed that the trespasser was Jason Sullivan, Cruise’s neighbor, and suggested his drunken state may be responsible for confusing Sullivan into entering the wrong property.

Sullivan should consider himself lucky.  Earlier this year, LL Cool J broke the nose and jaw of a burglar who had intruded his home, and a judge just sentenced a man to 18 months in prison for trespassing on Miley Cyrus’ property.

Cruise and his family weren’t home at the time and are all reportedly in safe condition.
