Jonathan E. Kirby appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday morning and entered the plea.

Kirby was arrested after the actor-rapper subdued him in his home early Aug. 22, breaking the 56-year-old’s jaw, nose, and ribs in the process. He was later charged with felony residential burglary and faces 38 years to life in prison if convicted due to his lengthy criminal history.

A district attorney’s spokeswoman says Kirby’s bail was set at $1.1 million.
