A report on TMZ.com says the actor, here shooting a movie, was accosted in his hotel.
Sources told TMZ that on March 22, actor Jamie Foxx struggled to get an intruder out of his room at the AKA Hotel near Rittenhouse Square after the man tricked Foxx into thinking he was Beyonce Knowles' producer. Foxx tussled with him and slammed the door in his face. Nine days after the incident, the report says, Foxx's bodyguards saw the man on the street and called police.
Philadelphia police told me today that a man identified as Steven Taliver, 49, who gave a homeless shelter as his address, was arrested Tuesday and charged with burglary and related offenses for being in a private part of the hotel. Police would not identify the complainant.
Taliver, whose rap sheet is impressive, is due in court in June on a charge of receiving stolen property from a 2006 car theft.
