This is all according to TMZ, which claims it obtained a copy of the search warrant officers used to search for weapons the alleged intruder, Joshua Corbett, owned.

"At 1 AM she hears a loud banging inside the house. Bullock goes to her bedroom door ... and she sees Corbett right there in the hallway wearing dark clothing."

And KCAL points out even though Bullock literally has barbed wire around her property, the man was still able to get inside. 

Authorities haven't said how Corbett entered the home June 8, but TMZ says once police showed up, he reportedly began screaming: "Sandy, I'm sorry. Please don't press charges."

The outlet also says Corbett was carrying a notebook with cut-out pictures of her and notes, one even calling Louis, Bullock's child, his son. (Via Getty Images)

It seems with fame come the crazies. Other celebs have had to deal with stalkers, too.

But why is someone's celebrity obsession often driving them to endanger the star — or even themselves? 

Well, it's possible for people to become obsessed with and "worship" celebrities. WebMD cited research, saying, "Psychologists found that about a third qualified for a condition they coined 'celebrity worship syndrome' -- a condition wherein, at its most severe, the object of our worship becomes the central figure in our lives."

As for Corbett, he has been charged with burglary, stalking and 19 felony counts for possessing weapons, including machine guns, Us Weekly says.
