Mama said knock you out. So LL Cool J did just that.
The actor/rapper awoke around 2 a.m. today after hearing commotion in his house. He went downstairs to check things out and found an intruder.
The well-muscled “NCIS Los Angeles” star proceeded to go hand-to-hand combat on the burglar, managing to detain him until police officers responding to an alarm arrived a few minutes later.
“He is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities,” said LL Cool J’s representative.
Officials say the suspect, who is currently hospitalized and being treated for facial injuries, is a transient who may suffer from mental illness.
LL Cool J was not injured in the incident.
