LL Cool J

Intruder's Busted Face

REVEALED In Court

8/28/2012 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828ll_cool_j_intruder_article_tmz_2The 56-year-old alleged burglar who got his ass whooped by LL Cool J last week just appeared in court ... finally revealing his bruises from his painful encounter at the rapper's L.A. home.

The transient in question -- a man named Jonathan Kirby -- is still sporting two black eyes ... presumably from the nose-breaking punch LL delivered on the night Kirby broke into his home last week.

During the hearing, Kirby pled "not guilty" to 1st degree burglary with a person present.

As we reported, the L.A. County District Attorney charged Kirby as a 3rd strike offender, which means Kirby now faces life in prison if convicted.

Kirby's bail was set at $1.1 million. A preliminary hearing has been set for next month.

I am all for a good criminal beat down, but isn't a million dollar bond for a house burglary a tad much?? I guess its a higher offense to break into celeb houses!!

okay i get pleading not guilty in the hopes some judge will be blind, deaf, and dumb, and actually believe him.

clearly it's not going to work when you're caught red-handed, beating by the person of the house you broke into, and then held there by said person until the cops show.

He is probibly pleading not guilty so that the prosecutor will give him a plea to save money by avoiding trial. He is just trying to not spend the rest of his life in prison. He probibly has an substance abuse problem. The homeless people I have known that are just down on their luck, keep up their appearance as much as possible and stay hygienic. The homeless people I have known that look like him are drug addicts or alcoholics. I hope whatever time he spends in prison he uses it to get his life back together, cause it seems to be quite a mess.
