LL Cool J plays a special agent on TV's NCIS: Los Angeles - and now he's had his own real-life "crime" drama.

Police have revealed how the rapper grabbed and held a burglary suspect at his Los Angeles home.

An emergency call came in from someone who said her father had spotted an intruder in their home and was holding him downstairs.

Officers arrived and took a man into custody, whose name has not been released. They said he had minor bruises and would be arrested on suspicion of burglary.

LL Cool J wasn't hurt, and apparently nothing was taken.
