    Tom Cruise's neighbor reportedly tried to break into his house.

    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, according to published reports.

    The prowler was later identified as a 41-year-old neighbor who seemingly entered the star's property in a drunken fit.

    The incident reportedly occurred at around 9:30 p.m. when a security guard noticed a man scaling a fence in order to access the house.

    The man 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.

    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.
