Kid Rock got into a scrap at a Waffle House in Georgia yesterday, throwing down with a man who was accompanying a former acquaintance of the singer and his band:
The musician stopped at the Waffle House restaurant shortly after 5 a.m. after his performance at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, authorities said.
“He and five members of his entourage were involved in a fight with a male customer inside the Waffle House,” said Mekka Parish, a spokeswoman for the DeKalb County Police Department.
The customer recognized a female with Kid Rock’s party and exchanged words with her, Parish said.
“It escalated to a physical altercation between Kid Rock and that male customer and moved outside to the parking lot,” she said. At some point the customer punched out a restaurant window, she said.
Rock was arrested, booked, and eventually released on bond yesterday evening; I’m going to guess that this whole tussle was, at its heart, a ploy to keep Rock & Roll Jesus in the top 10 during its third week on store shelves. He may have parted ways with his manager, but that doesn’t mean he can’t reuse the marketing techniques he learned while under his stewardship!
