LL Cool J: Rapper, actor, burglar catcher

In case you missed this news, LL Cool J — hip-hop artist, star of “NCIS: Los Angeles” and recent Grammy host — has added burglar suspect catcher to his resume.

L.A. police confirmed that Mr. Ladies Love Cool James caught an alleged burglar in his Studio City, Calif., home, subdued the guy and held him in his custody until police arrived and arrested the suspect. No one was hurt and nothing was taken, according to the Associated Press.

This is both impressive work on his part and an excuse to make all manner of jokes that riff on (take your pick): his hit album and song “Mama Said Knock You Out,” his 1987 release “Bigger and Deffer” or his former sitcom “In the House.”

Please feel free to insert your own witty kicker to this story by posting a comment.
