An intruder was arrested for trying to break into the home of independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his wife, actress Cheryl Hines, on Wednesday.
TMZ reported on Thursday that law enforcement was called to the Brentwood property around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning for a burglary.
The man had been subdued by Kennedy’s security guards and Hines, known for her role as Larry David’s wife in “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” was home at the time.
It was unclear whether Kennedy was at the property.
DailyMail.com’s request for comment from the Kennedy campaign was not immediately returned.

For months, Kennedy – who entered the presidential race as a Democrat in April but decided to run as an independent candidate earlier this month – has been asking for Secret Service protection.
His father, Robert F. Kennedy, was assassinated by a gunman while running for president in 1968.
His uncle, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated during his first term in the White House in 1963.
The 2024 candidate renewed his call for Secret Service protection in September after the arrest of a man who showed up to a Kennedy campaign rally armed with two pistols and posing as a police officer.
Again, Kennedy’s private security, provided by Gavin de Becker and Associates, arrested the man – 44-year-old Adrian Paul Aispuro.
“Although it is a well-known historical fact, it is apparently worth repeating in your case: Mr. Kennedy’s uncle, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. “Mr. Kennedy’s father, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, was assassinated as a presidential candidate,” Kennedy’s campaign manager, former Rep. Dennis Kucinich, said at the time.
In September, Kennedy praised his team at Gavin de Becker and Associates and the Los Angeles Police Department, but said he was “still hopeful that President Biden will grant me Secret Service protection.”
