Kid Rock, official rock star of bookofjoe, arrested for assault


What's this?

Apparently Kid Rock got into a contretemps earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.

He punched out a strip club D.J. around 3 a.m. this morning after one of Kid's friends was "disrespected" by D.J. Jerry Campos.

Kid, in his always–diplomatic fashion, asked the D.J. to apologize for a poor choice of words.

When Campos refused, Kid hammered him twice in the face.

Police were summoned but when they showed up to arrest him, Kid and another "well-known entertainer" fled through the back door of another strip club.

The cops finally caught up with him at 7 a.m. today at an apartment near Vanderbilt University where Kid was staying while he was in town to perform the song "I Saw the Light" during a memorial service yesterday for songwriter Merle Kilgore at Ryman Auditorium.

He was booked on a charge of simple assault and released from custody at 10:15 a.m. after posting $3,000 bond.


"Everything is wonderful, it was a beautiful night," he said as he left the Nashville Criminal Justice Center.


I'm sure he can handle this with his own resources.

But I must say I am just a wee bit disappointed in Kid.

I recall something my dentist told me one day while I was sitting in the chair waiting for the local to take effect.

He was a big-time high school football star back in the day.

His coach used to tell the team, "Nothing good happens after midnight."

I concur.

Kid should have been cozily tucked into bed with a good book last night, just like I was, instead of out running around in Nashville strip clubs.

I better have a word with him in private.

Impulse control issues get a little hazy after you've been a rock star for a while.

I've done my best to deal with them, but it's a recurrent bugaboo.


As Joe Walsh put it, "It's hard to leave when you can't find the door."
