LL Cool J – Bad Ass or Old Man Beater?

On the surface, the story makes LL Cool J sound like his NCIS former Navy Seal character … Potential burglar breaks into his house in the middle of the night, LL "detains" the burglar, breaks his nose, jaw and ribs in the process.

He lives his lyrics – "Mama said knock you out."

But the guy he detained/pummeled is a three-time loser who is 56 years old.

I'm not faulting LL for going upside this guy's head, he was defending his home and his family. But I'm thinking it might not have been a fair fight.
