Suspected intruder at Angelina and Brad's LA home was just having a pee in the bushes

Police were called to the home of Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt after a suspected intruder was detained by security guards.
Members of the security team working at the couple's home in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills spotted a man on the grounds of the estate last week, and called police to the scene.
After questioning the suspect, cops discovered he was homeless and had wandered onto the property to relieve himself in the bushes, according to TMZ.com. Editors of the website report the unnamed man was released without charge.
Neither Brad nor Angelina were at home at the time of the incident.
The stars and their brood of six children have spent much of the last few months in Asia while Angelina has been shooting a film in Cambodia.
The actress-turned-director has been working on a new movie titled First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia, adapted from human rights activist Loung Ung's memoir about the Khmer Rouge genocide in the south-east Asian country during the 1970s.
The family spent the holidays in Thailand, but the vacation was reportedly marred by drama after the couple's 12-year-old son Pax suffered a nasty leg injury.
Brad and Angelina were also recently hit with rumours suggesting they are planning to adopt another child, but officials in Cambodia shot down the reports.
A spokesman for Inter-Country Adoption Administration told the Phnom Penh Post the story is far fetched, adding, "I saw this on Facebook, but actually it's just a rumour. The adoption between the two countries (the U.S. and Cambodia) is not yet open."
Reports suggest American officials suspended adoptions from Cambodia more than a decade ago over "trafficking concerns" and the embargo has not been lifted.
Angelina previously adopted the couple's eldest son, Maddox, from Cambodia in 2002.
