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.

Oh another Andrew Keegan out of line and in trouble with the law story. For those who don't know who he is- it doesn't matter. He's done such things before. Therefore, it's easy to believe he was way out of hand.

Also, Marina del Rey rules. To the guy that said it didn't, you probably live on either end of the spectrum- Bev Hills or Culver City.

Maybe you can get him in front of a Karaoke machine to sing "all Shook Up" instead of Macaulay Culkin and Harvey doing "My Way". We could then compare the three and see who does the best job here.

SHOCKING!
I guess it's that old actor's complaint: "Can't even get arrested in this town..."

Wow this is so "L.A." ... No fewer than 13 cops on scene to deal with a "loud music" issue. Two or three officers restraining a rowdy celebrity with another ten or so shielding all the manhandling from the cameras.

People seem to forget that this is LA. You don't mouth off to cops in LA because they will beat your ass. There's certain places where you don't mouth off to cops. Texas, Georgia, New York and Los Angeles. They will beat and taser you...and then they'll ask questions. LAPD will go Rodney King on your asses. Best thing to do is STFU around cops in LA.
