Jonathan E. Kirby, 56, appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday morning and entered the plea.
Kirby was taken into custody after he was taken down by LL at his home on Aug. 22. The “NCIS: Los Angeles” star broke the man’s jaw, nose and ribs in the process. The intruder was later charged with felony residential burglary and faces 38 years to life in prison if convicted due to his lengthy criminal history.
LL Cool J, whose real name is James Todd Smith, and his family were unharmed during the break-in, and nothing was apparently taken from their home.
A district attorney’s spokeswoman says Kirby’s bail was set at $1.1 million.
