LL Cool J Stops Intruder Who Broke Into His Home

Earlier this week, LL Cool J used his muscles to pull off the ultimate home security. While sleeping in his Los Angeles, California residence, Cool James awoke after hearing a commotion downstairs, only to find a burglar trying to steal from his home. The intruder tripped the alarm system, but the veteran rapper decided to take matters into his own hands by putting the smackdown on the burglar, breaking his nose, ribs and jaw during the melee. The cops arrived on the scene shortly after to arrest the man, who had been convicted of previous crimes including involuntary manslaughter. He is reportedly waiting on $1.1 million bail and could face up to life in prison.
