Tom Cruise will not press charges against home intruder
“Mission Impossible” star Tom Cruise will not be pressing charges against the drunk guy who trespassed on his property.
According to reports, Bert Fields — the lawyer of 50-year-old Tom Cruise — said in a statement to media outlet TMZ: “Tom’s not a vindictive guy,” adding, “The guy was drunk. He didn’t have a malicious intent.”
Previous reports have stated that a guy named Jason Sullivan — an Australian model/interior designer/reality star — has been living next door to Tom Cruise at the home of Kevin Huvane, Tom’s agent. Jason came home drunk Sunday night, mistook the actor’s property for Kevin’s and began to enter the grounds. Tom’s security told Jason Sullivan to leave, but instead, he tried scaling the privacy wall to get further into the actor’s property. Jason then began walking toward the house of Tom Cruise and was warned he would be tased if he continued. When he kept walking, Jason was tased twice.
Jason Sullivan was arrested, cited for misdemeanor trespassing and released.
Beverly Hills cops will likely refer the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney, but given that it’s a an ordinary misdemeanor, it’s likely Jason Sullivan will not be prosecuted.
