Tempted to visit LL Cool J's place? Remember to knock. Perhaps bring a small gift. Do not, we repeat do not, let yourself in and then come running at the man of the house. 

LL Cool J delivered a broken jaw and broken nose to a suspected burglar at his Studio City home in the wee hours Wednesday, police sources told L.A. Now, in a "knock-down, drag-out" fight that occurred after the rapper and actor heard sounds coming from the kitchen and went downstairs to check things out.

The suspect, described by police as a transient, reportedly rushed the "NCIS: Los Angeles"star, and the fight ensued.

LL Cool J, real name James Todd Smith, was reportedly holding the suspect when police arrived after 1 a.m. The intruder, who was not identified, was hospitalized for treatment of his injuries, TMZ said.

"Mama Said Knock You Out," indeed.
