The suspect was held on suspicion of trespassing and burglary, police said.

LAPD officers reported that they responded to a 911 trespassing call at the singer's home. They said they found a man hiding in the bushes, and when he refused to cooperate with police, they used a non-lethal Taser gun on him.
