The rapper gave a man who sneaked into his L.A. home some good punches and held him until the police arrived.
LL Cool J became his family's hero after taking down an intruder in his Los Angeles home. The rapper confirmed through his representative that he is safe and unharmed, adding "He is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities."
The intruder sneaked into his house on Wednesday, August 22 morning at around 2 A.M. According to TMZ's source, LL heard some commotion downstairs and came face to face with the suspect who had triggered his security alarm. LL gave the intruder a good beating enough to keep him down until the LAPD arrived to make an arrest.
Unconfirmed reports said LL broke the intruder's nose and jaw, and the man is being treated in hospital for his injuries. Officials believed the man, described as a 58-year-old white male, may suffer from mental issues. Nothing was stolen from the house.
"LL Cool J and his family are safe and thank everyone from their thoughts and concern. As a father, husband and citizen, he is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities on this private matter," his rep said.
