Idiot breaks into LL Cool J's home, gets beaten up: 5 others robbers should avoid

Somebody on Wednesday decided it would be a great idea to break into LL Cool J's home.

Bad idea.

The guy who sang "Mama Said Knock You Out" and the author of "LL Cool J's Platinum Workout" is in fantastic shape. The burglar – at this point – no longer is. According to a TIME article on the incident:

The actor and MC behind such classic hip-hop jams as “Big Ole Butt“ and “I’m Bad“ discovered his home being burglarized early Wednesday morning, and quickly resolved the problem — with his fists. The 58-year-old suspect reportedly sustained a broken nose and jaw in what police sources told the Los Angeles Times was a “knock-down, drag-out” fight.

As a public service announcement to other would-be celebrity burglars, I thought I would point out some other people they might want to stay away from. Find out who they are by flipping through the photo gallery below:
