Taye Diggs

Thwarts Home Invasion

By Himself

EXCLUSIVE

0128_taye_diggs_gettySome actors play super heroes on the screen, but Taye Diggs really is one ... single-handedly apprehending a guy who tried to break into his L.A. home last night ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Diggs was at his home last night when a man broke into his home shortly after 11:00 PM. We're told Diggs -- who was at the SAG Awards earlier in the evening -- confronted the suspect, who then took off running.

According to our sources, Diggs then actually chased after the guy and eventually caught up to him. We're told Diggs held the man (who we're told was around 20) until cops arrived.

Our law enforcement sources say there was a getaway driver ... but he got away.

You can run from Taye Diggs, but you cannot hide.

... Running after the guy was actually pretty stupid, Taye.

What if he wasn't alone and actually had backup near him? What if he had a gun? 'Thought about your wife and kid if that was the case?

Not saying that what you've done was wrong per say - completely understand you trying to protect your family and all. It just wan't tthat smart, that's all...

Probably some malnourished homeless guy like the one LL Cool J busted up I wouldn't be too proud of that.

At least he didn't use it as an excuse to beat the living be-jesus out of a guy, the way LL Cool J did.
