LOS ANGELES (AP) — LL Cool J plays a special agent on TV’s “NCIS: Los Angeles,” and now he’s caught an actual bad guy.

Los Angeles police say the rapper grabbed and held a burglary suspect at his Los Angeles home Wednesday morning.

Police got an emergency call shortly before 1 a.m. from someone who said her father had spotted an intruder in their home and was holding him downstairs.

Officers arrived and took a man into custody. Police say he had minor bruises and will be arrested on suspicion of burglary. His name hasn’t been released.

LL Cool J wasn’t hurt, and apparently nothing was taken.
