BEVERLY HILLS — Actor David Spade, star of TV's "Just Shoot Me," was attacked with a stun gun in his Beverly Hills home on Wednesday, after discovering one of his employees there without permission, police said.

The comic actor called 911 at 6:22 a.m. to report a burglary in progress, Sgt. Brad Cornelius said, but the intruder had fled by the time the first officers arrived a minute later.

Spade, 36, told police that the man had attacked him with an electric stun gun and that there had been a struggle.

Spade, who got his start on "Saturday Night Live" then played straight man to the late Chris Farley in a series of movies, suffered minor injuries, Cornelius said.

Police arrested David Warren Malloy, 29, of Los Angeles at about 3:30 p.m. in Brea, Cornelius said.

Malloy, an employee of Spade, was booked on suspicion of burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and assault with a stun gun, Cornelius said. Bail was set at $50,000.
