Law enforcement Loves Cool James, and home intruders should listen to lyrics.
Authorities say the rapper/actor grabbed and held a burglary suspect on Wednesday morning inside his Studio City home until the police arrived.
A 911 call was received just before 1 a.m. from a person who said her father found an intruder in their home, and was holding him downstairs.
Officers arrived and took the unnamed man into custody. The suspect, who they say had minor bruises, will be arrested on suspicion of burglary.
A representative for LL Cool J says the 44-year-old and his family were not hurt, and that he is cooperating with police.
Nothing was apparently stolen from his home.
