Stallone Trespasser -- I 'Knocked Out' An Attack Dog

9/1/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The schmuck who broke onto Sylvester Stallone's estate last week tells us he K.O.'d an angry pit bull so he could get onto the property ... in a bonehead attempt to prove that he can be an action star.

The guy behind the plot is 22-year-old Damon T. Dana -- who was arrested for trespassing on Sly's L.A. estate last Tuesday.

Dana tells us he just moved to the U.S. from Germany to be an action star ... and thought it would be a good idea to just show up to Sly's home and attempt to "impress him" with his martial arts skills.

For the record -- Stallone ... and cops ... don't it see the same way.

According to Dana, dude jumped the gate to the neighborhood and was immediately attacked by a pit bull ... which he claims to have "knocked out" with a left hook.

Next, Dana says he hopped another fence or two before ending up in Sly's yard -- where he stood outside "doing martial arts and working out" ... until private security took him down. Dude was eventually tossed in the slammer for trespassing.

Dana tells TMZ he's really a "good person" and was just looking for his big break. Sources close to Stallone tell us Sly was definitely not amused.

He thought he'd impress Sly and subsequently get a meeting with him by knocking out his dog? This guy is definitely a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

He just figured he'd trespass on the guy's property, knock out his dog, and Sly would come out and go "Yo, you'se are really impressive what with the left and the right and the dog and all's that. I'm thinking, you know, that I should feature you in my next movie. C'mon in and lets me get you, you know, something to drink or whatever. Yo Adrian, we'se got, you know, a guest, or whatever."

Funny coincidence. 2 weeks ago on the Howard Stern Show they were talking to SLy asking all sorts of questions about the new movie the Expendables. they brought up JCVD and how he didnt want to be in the movie. Sly told Howard that he first met JCVD when JCVD was fresh off the boat from Belgium. JCVD appearantly went to Sly's house, caught him when he was leaving and performed his martial arts act for Sly. Sly then gave him some advice. I knew some lunatic would try something like this after he told that story.
