LL Cool J put his "NCIS: Los Angeles" training to good use against a burglar in his L.A. home early Wednesday morning.




Law enforcement sources told the gossip site TMZ that the 42-year-old rapper turned TV military cop was woken by a noise at about 2 a.m. and found the intruder downstairs.

LL, aka James Todd Smith, confronted the would-be burglar, left him with a few bruises as a memento and detained him for the police. The suspect will be charged with burglary, cops said.

"LL Cool J, and his family, are safe and thank everyone for their thoughts and concern," a spokesman said in a statement to the Daily News. "As a father, husband and citizen, he is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities on this private matter."

The Long Island-born star, who raps "LL Cool J is hard as hell, battle anybody, I don't care who you tell" on his hit "Rock the Bells," told Men's Health in 2006 his workout regimen includes pullups, punching a heavy bag and running up hills with a weighted vest.

As impressive as the "Mama Said Knock Ya Out" rapper's feat is, action star Dolph Lundgren managed to subdue a band of masked intruders who broke into his home in Spain in 2009 â€" without actually being there.

After taking Lundgren's wife and children hostage, the home invaders realized whose house they were robbing after stumbling on a photograph. They dropped the jewelry they were pilfering, apologized and fled.

"It's a good thing for them I wasn't there," the hulking Lundgren told The News a year later, "or else, 'you'll be sorry.' "
