Just Shoot Me star David Spade has just learned that good help is hard to find.

He was attacked by his personal assistant Wednesday, as the stun gun wielding employee tried to rob Spade’s Beverly Hills Home. Spade’s personal assistant, David Warren Malloy, 29, was arrested and charged with burglary and assault with a deadly weapon.

In a statement Spade said, “David Molloy was a good friend of mine for five years. I believe he is a good person who is obviously mentally troubled right now. I can only hope that he seeks the help he needs to get well. My heart goes out to him.”
