Hip hop legend and actor LL Cool J had a close encounter with a burgler in his Studio City, California home early this morning. Said encounter left the burgler with a broken nose and jaw after what police called "a knock-down, drag out fight." Looks like the time LL spent training with MMA coach Greg Jackson in July was time well spent.
The LA Times has more:
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 was upstairs in his home when he heard noise coming from the kitchen area. When he went down to see what was happening, the unidentified suspect came at him, leading to the fight.
