Man charged with breaking into LL Cool J’s home


A HOMELESS man was charged on August 23 with burglary for allegedly breaking into the California home of LL Cool J, where the actor-rapper subdued him.

Jonathan Kirby was charged with first-degree burglary with a person present and faces a maximum of 38 years to life in prison if convicted. Prosecutors are asking bail be set at $1.1 million.

No arraignment date has been set and it wasn’t immediately known if Kirby, 56, has retained an attorney.

Kirby remains in a hospital with a broken nose, jaw and ribs after the early Wednesday (August 22) altercation with the NCIS: Los Angeles actor, authorities said. LL Cool J held Kirby until police arrived and was not injured.

Kirby has a criminal record, including convictions for voluntary manslaughter in Dallas nearly 25 years ago, along with burglary and petty theft.
