A transient broke into LL Cool J’s Los Angeles home early this morning. It did not turn out so well for him. Police say the musician-turned-actor and the would-be burglar had a “knock-down, drag-out fight” that left the losing party with a busted nose and jaw.
Los Angeles police were called to the star's home in the 12000 block of Blairwood Drive around 1 a.m. Wednesday, officials said. LL Cool J was holding the suspect when officers arrived, officials said.
LL Cool J, born James Todd Smith, rose to fame with musical hits such as "Mama Said Knock You Out" and "I'm Bad." He currently stars in "NCIS: Los Angeles."
Detectives were waiting to interview the suspect, who was not immediately identified, at a hospital where he was being treated. The suspect is described as a transient, and police could not immediately say whether he had a criminal record.
As an aside, I happened to walk by Cool J on the street not long ago and he is the size of an NFL linebacker. Just a poor choice by the aspiring Wet Bandit.
