Irish actor Colin Farrell had a scary run-in with a fan who showed up at his door, hoping to meet him, on Saturday (16Nov13). The Phone Booth star called police after the unarmed man entered onto his Los Angeles property.
The fan was reportedly taken into custody for an involuntary mental evaluation, also known as a 5150 psychiatric hold, following the encounter.
Police have not released the man's name, but editors at TMZ.com report he is not a U.S. citizen.
Farrell brushed off the scare to attend the Governors Awards with his sister, Claudine, on Saturday night, according to GossipCop.com.
The star attended a screening at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada with his sister and personal assistant Claudine.
But the 33 year old took exception when one snapper asked his sibling to step away from her brother's side to allow a clear shot of the actor - and Farrell angrily confronted the photographer.
Joe Alvarez says, "I was just saying, 'Please can everyone clear the carpet, move on'. He took it personal. He said, 'Do not shout at my sister like that, do not ever speak to my sister like that ever'."
