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.

Why are there so many cops? Protecting the cop gang?.. It becomes SICKENING when illegal measures then are used and abused by those set to protect and serve... but cop abuse supporters, don't worry, The abuse will be called reasonable...

All the guy needed to do was turn down his music and act like an adult and not like a child. Why do some of these actors think the law doesn't apply to them. I have always been told to listen to what the police say and you won't get into trouble. I guess he was never given that advice and he mouthed off to the police and look what happened. He got what he deserved in my opinion I guess he has to obey the laws that everyone else does. He's not above the law and they police made sure he knew that.

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


It's easy, be white.

captain- he isn't really white.
he is an actor- in California, if you have been in movies or TV shows, you can just about get a free pass on everything.
anyway, i still wish they would have killed him.

What idiot says anything other than "yes, sir", "no, sir" to a police officer who directed him to do something as inane as turning down their loud music?

Andrew Keegan got just what he deserved, actually, a lot less than he should have gotten since he should have spent some time in the pokie for sheer ignorance and stupidity.

THE FACTS ARE; KEEGAN WAS NOT TASERED (WAS NOT TASERED)... HE DID NOT COMPLY WITH LAPDS REQUEST TO ABIDE BY CITY MUNICIPAL CODES AND REFUSED TO CUFF UP... HE WAS WARNED THAT IF HE HAD THIS EVENT WITHOUT A PERMIT HE WOULD BE CITED, POSSIBLY ARRESTED AND RISK LOSING HIS EQUIPMENT... ALL HE HAD TO DO IS FOLLOW THE LAWS FOR BLOCKING A PUBLIC AREA AND CONTRACT THE PROPER SERVICES TO HAVE ALCOHOL IN THE STREETS AND HE AND HIS FRIENDS COULD HAVE PARTIED ALL NIGHT... HE STILL GOT OFF EASY HE WAS ONLY CITED FOR A NOISE VIOLATION 1 OF ONLY SEVERAL MORE SERIOUS VIOLATIONS HE COULD'VE RECEIVED HE MADE A BOAT LOAD OF MONEY CHARGING ABOUT $20 A HEAD FOR ENTRY AND CHARGING FOR VARIOUS OTHER AMENITIES HE HAS NOTHING TO BE BITTER ABOUT.... HIS CHARGES WILL BE DISMISSED WITH A WARNING AND HE WILL DO IT AGAIN HOPEFULLY LEGALLY AND WITH RESPECT FOR THE LAWS THAT GOVERN THE LAND!!!

TMZ should learn how to do reporting, and you other commenters shouldn't be so hasty with your judgments. Keegan was NOT tasered but neither was he 'aggressive' towards the cops. That's their version. The "party" Keegan was throwing was a multi-sponsored public event that had been advertised for weeks. It was a BENEFIT CONCERT for several local charities. NINE bands volunteered their time and many other volunteers organized this all-day event. Because ONE neighbor called to complain about the noise (at 5pm in the afternoon on Saturday!!!) the police showed up with at least 15 officers in cars, on horses and bikes, and with helicopters!
