LL Cool J wasn’t joking when he rapped “Mama Said Knock You Out.” A would-be burglar found that out the hard way. LL Cool J beat up a guy for trying to break into his L.A. home.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, a man tried to break into LL Cool J’s L.A. mansion around two in the morning. LL, real name James Todd Smith, was not only home but also awake. The rapper heard strange noises on the first floor of his home and went to investigate the commotion and found an intruder in the home.
LL Cool J’s house alarm was set off by the intrusion, but while the police were on their way, LL and the potential burglar got into a fist fight when the intruder tried to escape. The fight lasted long enough for the police to arrive and arrest the criminal. Plenty of sources are saying LL wasn’t harmed in the altercation, but the intruder did walk away with a few bruises and a burglary charge.
