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.

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

Bad journalism, that's how. TMZ is the best of the best at it!

I hope Andrew sues the LAPD, because they probably had no right to taser him. And any other average American would have been arrested and charged with something!!! These days, cops are arrogant douchebags! If Andrew would not turn down the music, then the cops should have followed proper procedure and got a judge's order to do so. If Andrew still refused, then they had proper authority from the judge to break-in, arrest him, and break-up the party.

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

You got to love that Californian Celebrity Justice... if the community got wind of that constant level of preferential treatment of "celebrated" [ugh] individuals--HEAD WOULD ROLL, if not sooner, at the ballot box.

Californians get what they deserve, effed up courts, wildfires, earthquakes, and anything else God chooses to dole out on the disgusting state.

I do have one question, I lived in Europe and somehow the police manage to diffuse situations without tasering people, why are American police so quick to inflict pain on others.

ANSWER: Because most [not all] cops are just thugs in uniforms, if they weren't do that, they'd be in prison themselves.

Who knows what kind of s*** live in L.A. Better safe than sorry, IMO. It's not like anyone died.

Sounds to me like Keegan thinks he's a hardass. It's ok, though. I think he learned his lesson.

Just curious: a simple phone call (apparently from neighbors) about loud music, and TWELVE cops show up? Just count them in the picture.. They apparently have nothing else to do - what, no more crime in the area or just bored to death? Hey, I made a new joke: how many cops does it take to turn down the music? The actor was definitely wrong but, again, how many cops do you need for such a minor thing?
