BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities said a security guard at Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills, California, mansion used a stun gun on a trespasser who turned out to be an intoxicated neighbor who may have mistakenly entered the property.

Police said 41-year-old Jason Sullivan was shot with a Taser at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday at the home on Calle Vista Drive. He was then treated at a hospital and arrested on suspicion of trespassing.

Police said neither Cruise nor his family were at the home when a guard saw a man climbing a fence to get onto the grounds. A guard shocked the man and held him for police.

It wasn't immediately known if Sullivan has an attorney.
