7/3/2011 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Actor Andrew Keegan was tasered and handcuffed last night ... after getting into a scuffle with cops.

Multiple witnesses tell TMZ ... Keegan -- who has starred in a bunch of movies and TV shows  including "10 Things I Hate about You" and "7th Heaven" -- was throwing a party in Marina Del Ray last night when cops rolled up and asked him to turn down the music. Witnesses say Keegan refused and became "very aggressive."

We're told officers slammed him to the ground and tasered him. One witness said they could hear Keegan screaming to let him go.

Keegan was eventually released and according to cops ... he was never placed under arrest.

A source who spoke to Keegan late last night told us "he was very shaken up" by the ordeal. 

That tends to happen when a lot of electricity passes through your body.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Keegan was "uncooperative" when talking to cops. They say Keegan was detained and released, but say he was not tasered.

Again, how many of us regular people can get away with this kind of behavior towards a cop?

How can you be tasered, cuffed and taken in but not arrested?

Love people that think it's their God-given right to turn the sound system way up.

Dude it's your neighbors God-given right to call the police.

Then you diss the police?

Dude it's time to go back to Nebraska.

CLASSIC FAIL! These D listers (and many A listers) lose reality from the fog of the fictional world of acting. A tough guy in fantasy land does not really work that well in the Real World!

Hollyood and even 80% of the Rap world are girlymen.

I have NO clue who he is, but from what I read he must think, like so MANY Hollywood types, that the laws DO NOT apply to him! I'm glad he was tasered. Maybe the next time a cop asks him to do something, he'll do it without thinking who he is!

We are going to see a lot of this type of behavior. After all, they are celebrities and as weve seen with Lindsay, they are above the law and not held accountable for anything.
The only thing that will stop them is if they are held to the same standard as we are

Abe- quit stirring the pot. The WITNESSES even said the cops just asked him to turn down the music. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GONNA HAPPEN IF YOU GET AGGRESSIVE WITH A COP YOU IDIOT?!?!?!?!
People like are the ones that get in a cops face for no other reason than to show off. Get off this board with that ghetto mentality.

Something's really wrong in Hollywood when nobody "actors" get thrown to the ground and tazered, yet don't get arrested. What's wrong with these cops?
