Mr. Ladies Love Cool J or Mama said you knock you out man in this case had a surprise around 1am in his Blairwood Drive home in LA on Wednesday early morning. He got an unexpected visitor a burglar with a record 56 year old Jonathan Kirby who had a track record of thefts, burglary and drugs on his record.
I guess he decided he was going to try and rob LL Cool J but he wasn’t having it! He took matters into his own hands to protect his family.
LL Cool J, born James Todd Smith, told police he was upstairs in his home when he heard a noise coming from the kitchen area. When he went to investigate, a man came at him, leading to the fight, police said.
During what several sources described as a brawl, Kirby suffered a broken nose, jaw and ribs. The actor, who was not injured, later told authorities that he acted out of the concern for his family
A Texas-native, Kirby has a record of thefts, disorderly conduct and other criminal activity across Los Angeles and Orange counties.
Court and prisons records indicate Kirby was sentenced to five years in prison for burglary in the 1990s and three years in prison for petty theft in 2005. He also has another theft conviction for which he served jail time, records show. He was discharged from prison on Feb. 1.
