LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors say a homeless man has been charged with burglary for allegedly breaking into the California home of LL Cool J, where the actor-rapper subdued him.

Jonathan Kirby was charged Thursday with first-degree burglary with a person present and faces a maximum of 38 years to life in prison if convicted. Los Angeles County prosecutors are asking bail be set at $1.1 million for the 56-year-old, who has been convicted of at least two serious crimes.

Prosecutors say Kirby remains in a hospital with a broken nose, jaw and ribs after the early Wednesday altercation with the "NCIS: Los Angeles" actor. LL Cool J held Kirby until police arrived.
