Kid Rock Charged For Tommy Lee Fight
Las Vegas Police Department charged Kid Rock with misdemeanor battery after an altercation with rocker Tommy Lee,at the MTV Video Music Awards last night.
The LVPD issued the following statement:
“We had a lot of officers working in and around the awards, so they got there fairly quickly,” the statement said. “We determined that the altercation was between Kid Rock and Tommy Lee. After our investigation, Kid Rock did receive a citation for misdemeanor battery. Everyone involved was interviewed.”
Rap producer Rich Nice, who witnessed the whole mess,said:
“It looked like Tommy initiated the fight because Kid was ignoring him. Tommy started to antagonise Kid, and then when Tommy stood up Kid hit him first with a backhand.
“Tommy looked like he was trying to aggressively retaliate and then Kid hit him again. Security then grabbed Tommy in a headlock and pulled him off.”
Rock is expected to appear in a Las Vegas court in the upcoming weeks.
If convicted, the rocker faces a $500 fine and up to six months in jail.
