Tom Cruise -- Safety Risk?

Tom Cruise has had an unwelcome visitor, and his head of security went to court yesterday to express concern.

Edward Van Tassel was arrested the day before the Prez election after waving a gun and an American flag on a freeway in Santa Barbara. He was taken to an unsecured Veteran's hospital awaiting his court hearing.

Yesterday, at a bail hearing, the prosecutor said Van Tassel had left the VA facility three times to go to Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills house to deliver a letter. We're told Van Tassel believed Cruise was sympathetic to vets.

Tom's P.I. said he was concerned for his client, and the judge ordered Van Tassel to stay away from Cruise.
