*As we reported, LL Cool J didn’t need the help of Antoine Dodson to keep his family safe when some fool intruded  his Los Angeles area home Wednesday morning to do a little shopping.

Unconfirmed reports said LL broke the intruder’s nose and jaw, and the man is being treated in hospital for his injuries.

Officials believed the man, described as a 58-year-old white male, may suffer from mental issues. Nothing was stolen from the house.

“LL Cool J and his family are safe and thank everyone from their thoughts and concern. As a father, husband and citizen, he is committed to keeping his family safe and is cooperating with authorities on this private matter,” his rep said.
