LL Cool J 's intruder - Jonathan Kirby - has been snapped for the first time, and it ain't pretty. Last week, we brought you the news that the rapper-turned-actor had discovered Mr Kirby in his home at 2am and proceeded to break his nose and jaw before the police arrived.
Now, Tmz.com has obtained a photograph of the 56-year-old wearing an orange prison jump suit and sporting two nasty looking black eyes. During his court hearing, Kirby pled "not guilty" to 1st degree burglary with a person present (a charge that carries a possible 30 year sentence considering Kirby's past criminal record). The Los Angeles County District Attorney charged Kirby as a 3rd strike offender, and set his bail at $1.1 million. A preliminary hearing has been set for next month. Sources said the intruder tripped LL Cool J's alarm system, waking the Ncis Los Angeles star from his slumber. The Hollywood star decided to go head-to-head with the burglar, and managed to detain him until police arrived. A representative for the star said, "He is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities".
Officials believe Mr Kirby may be suffering from mental issues, though this is yet to be confirmed. LL Cool J plays street kid-turned-police officer Sam Hanna in popular series Ncis Los Angeles. His movie credits include Any Given Sunday, Deep Blue Sea and S.W.A.T with Colin Farrell.
