LL Cool J has always been known as quite a tough guy but it seems he put his NCIS: Los Angeles training to good use against a burglar who broke into his LA home last night (August 21).
According to TMZ the rapper was woken by a noise at about 2 a.m. and found the intruder downstairs.
LL Cool J, aka James Todd Smith, confronted the burglar, threw a few punched as a memento and held him until police arrived.
“LL Cool J, and his family, are safe and thank everyone for their thoughts and concern,” a spokesman said in a statement to the Daily News. “As a father, husband and citizen, he is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities on this private matter."
It seems his vigorous work out regimen of pullups, punching a heavy bag and running up hills with a weighted vest helped him out.
