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.
