This sounds like a scene straight out of a Tom Cruise action movie.

A man was arrested Sunday night for allegedly trespassing the star's Beverly Hills home after Cruise's security team saw him hop a fence and tasered him, E! News has confirmed.

According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, the prowler has been identified Jason Sullivan, 41, a neighbor who reportedly entered the star's property in a drunken fit.

The incident occurred at 9:35 p.m. when a security guard noticed a man scaling a fence in order to access the house.

Sullivan, an Australian interior designer-turned-TV personality, was shot with a stun gun and detained before police arrived to take him into custody. He was reportedly treated at a nearby hospital for injuries related to the tasering.

"Sullivan lives at an adjacent property and was intoxicated at the time of the incident and may have confused himself and entered the wrong property," police said in a statement.

Neither Cruise nor his family were at home at the time.

The 50-year-old Mission: Impossible star recently filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Life & Style and In Touch Weekly over stories claiming that the actor abandoned his and Katie Holmes' 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
