LL Cool J turned the tables on a burglar who broke into his home last night...
LL Cool J came face-to-face with a burglary suspect in his home, and took the guy down with his own hands early this morning ... TMZ has learned.
According to law enforcement sources ... the suspect entered LL's Los Angeles area house around 2AM, but unfortunately for him the actor/rapper/badass was home.
We're told LL heard some commotion downstairs, went to check it out ... and found the intruder.
Sources say the "NCIS Los Angeles" star -- who is a physical beast -- went hand-to-hand combat on the dude ... and managed to detain the suspect until LAPD officers arrived a few minutes later to arrest him.
We're told LL is okay, but the suspect -- who will be booked for burglary -- suffered a few bruises.
