*First he’s hit by LL Cool J, now he’s hit with burglary charges.


The homeless man beaten down by LL Cool J has been charged with burglary.

Jonathan Kirby, the homeless man caught red-handed by the rapper after allegedly breaking into his California home, was charged on Thursday with first-degree burglary with a person present and faces a maximum of 38 years to life in prison if convicted. Prosecutors are asking bail be set at $1.1 million.

No arraignment date has been set and it wasn’t immediately known if Kirby, 56, has retained an attorney, reports the AP.

Kirby remains in a hospital with a broken nose, jaw and ribs after the early Wednesday altercation with the “NCIS: Los Angeles” actor, authorities said. LL Cool J held Kirby until police arrived and wasn’t injured.

Kirby has a criminal record, including convictions for voluntary manslaughter in Dallas nearly 25 years ago, along with burglary and petty theft.
