Kid Rock's Rock N Roll Jesus might be able walk on water, but he wasn't able to walk out of jail after a fight last night in Atlanta. After a getaway in the band tour bus, Rock spent 12 hours in the slammer until around 5 pm Sunday afternoon.
From the Atlanta
While promoting his latest CD, Kid Rock vowed he was putting his days of made-for-the-tabloid antics behind him. The man from Michigan says he wants to be known for his music, not as a gossip-column item.
This weekend in Atlanta, Kid Rock managed to do both.
His discography has seen salvation: starting with "Devil Without a Cause" and now advancing to "Rock N Roll Jesus". Kid Rock might need some more lovin' though. More from the C-J:
Saturday night, he rocked a sold-out Tabernacle at a show supporting "Rock N Roll Jesus," currently the No. 1 album in the country and the first chart-topper of his 17-year career.
A few hours later, Kid Rock, who calls his genre-bending blend of country, rap and southern rock "hick-Hop," was arrested after police said he and his entourage beat up a customer — at a local Waffle House.
Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, was charged with simple battery, as were five other men who were with him.
The 36-year-old rocker was released from DeKalb County Jail on Sunday afternoon after posting a $1,000 bond on the misdemeanor charge.
More from CNN:
"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.
