He's "Doin' It" in court now.
The homeless man who allegedly broke into LL Cool J's Van Nuys, Calif., residence yesterday—and was swiftly taken down by the actor-rapper, who detained him until police arrived—has been charged with first degree burglary with a person present.
The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office confirms to E! News that Jonathan Kirby, 56, was also charged as a Third Strike offender which means, per the felony complaint filed by assistant prosecutor William Ryder, under California law, if convicted, he could be facing a maximum prison sentence of 38 years to life.
The transient entered LL Cool J's house at about 1 a.m. Wednesday morning tripping an alarm that alerted the hip-hopster and his family to his presence. LL subsequently leaped into action and tackled the suspect and, according to police, a physical confrontation ensued in which Kirby sustained multiple minor injuries.
The "Mama Said Knock You Out" MC, who knows a few things about nabbing bad guys as the star of NCIS: Los Angeles, held the intruder down until cops arrived. Kirby was booked on suspicion of burglary and taken to a hospital where he still remains as he receives treatment for a broken nose, jaw and ribs.
A rep for LL Cool J was unavailable for comment.
