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.

Transient... ? Poor bastard obviously has some mental health issues. Kirby deserved to have his face pummeled but it's still a damn shame.

Should have found a shelter to reside.

Not defending this guy's actions, but considering that the Colorado shooter is also getting life in prison, the sentence seems a little harsh, especially since he didn't have a weapon.

He doesn't look that fierce. He just looks like some guy who needed a place to rest and grab a bite to eat. I wonder what he wanted there or if anyone asked him. I wonder if all his break ins called burglaries were really just attempts in his confused mind to find a home.


Why are they throwing the book at this guy? If his bail was $1,000 he probably coudln't post that either. Why are they trying to make him out to be so big and dangerous?


Drunks sometimes get confused and wander into the wrong houses. The owner asks what are you doint here and then the person leaves. LL beat this guy up and held him for the police. He not only got the hook, now he is getting the book.
