LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kid Rock was cited for misdemeanor battery after a tussle with Tommy Lee in the audience at the MTV Video Music Awards, police said.
The rock-rapper received the citation after police reported to the Palms Hotel and Casino shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday and interviewed people at the scene, Officer Bill Cassell said.
Kid Rock was not taken into custody, he said.
MTV VJ Sway said during the post-show that he saw Kid Rock walk up to the Motley Crue drummer, who was sitting next to Sean "Diddy" Combs, and "deck him."
Both Lee and Kid Rock are ex-husbands of Pamela Anderson, who was a presenter at the show.
Another eyewitness, rap producer Rich Nice, said although Kid Rock threw the only blows that landed — a backhand slap and a punch — Tommy Lee was the instigator.
"It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him," said Nice, who was two tables away. "And Tommy Lee kind of antagonized him. And then when Tommy Lee stood up, it looked a little weird, like 'Yo, what?'"
"When Tommy stands up is when Kid hit him the first time with a backhand," Nice continued. "And then Tommy Lee looked like he was trying to get at him to aggressively retaliate and then Kid Rock hits Tommy Lee again — bong. And then security grabs Tommy Lee in a headlock and pulls him off."
Security guards let Kid Rock stay for the rest of the show while Lee was dragged out.
Cassell said Kid Rock could face up to six months in jail, but that it would be uncommon for someone facing similar charges to receive such a lengthy sentence.
Looks like they were having too much fun @ the VMA'S
I wished they showed the fight on TV. Tommy was being an *** when Pamela was presenting.

and am i the only one that finds sway to be extremely rude and annoying?
officer Bill Casell..tell the JENA 6 that !!!!!!
So rappers get Vibe Awards, and rockers get MTV awards. lol I love it!
that needed 2 be on tv cuz that awards show was dumb as f.u.c.***. im so mad that we couldnt see that. Dammit MTV!!!!
Tommy lee is a Red Neck ignorant ***.
When he came to Detroit for superbowl, he started a bunch of sh%t. And guess what he got the brakes beat off ***. No one cared, they step over his ***, the police tried to shooo his instigating blood *** away. Kid is from Detroit, he was raised with the culture, he doesnt mess with any one , BUT he is by no means a Bit#h. He hangs with all of his regulars . He might walk awy once, twice , but never three times. Tommy Lee has let some of that tatoo ink go to his brain.
Over that fake sick white skank?
Kid Rock was a gangsta rapper....he ain't no punk!
*** why they didn't show that Sh%$?
Don't hit somebody and run like a punk stay and fight them.
That was long over due!! I knew a fight was going to break out between them two jealous of each other....
Remember Kid Rock first child is by some black girl so he got a whole lot of black in him! LMAO!
I just wish someone got the beginning of the fight on video or something they should have showed that instead of that horrible show LOL
Kid rock got a kid by a black girl? *** who would have thought...
DNA proved the little girl his baby mother had was not his. Bob Richie Jr is DEFINATELY his. The little girl was full blk and the momma tried to pass it off as Kid Rocks'
Kid Rock isn't one of us. He was knee deep in the blk until he made it big and started wifing up the whitest of the white girls. Did you see what he was wearing last ***? Acting like he was always country. He's crossover.
Thank God it was no Hip Hop artist involved finally
Pamela whatserface must have some BOMB AZZ PUZZY for these 2 fools to still be fighting over her azz. ***. I bet Kid Rock woulda beat Tommys azz tho. Kid got a black son. he knows whatssup. lol.
thank you media for portaying white on white violence for once!!!!!! i mean it, kudos. hell they fight too!
LOL...wouldn't of never known it happened if it wasn't for Jamie Foxx, Diddy, and Joc joking about it.
all this for a run down chick with hepatitis, ewwwwww. guys theres better *** out there, Jesus there has to be
See MTV left out the best part of the awards! They wanted to be clean and not be like the Vibe Or Source Awards! *** MTV!!! LOL!!! Kid Rock Decked Him LOL!!!
over a tramp like Pamela Anderson.
Kid Rock's not from the City of Detroit, but he came up close enough. He ain't no punk.
He'll stomp a mudhole in Tommy Lee's b!tch a$$. With the quickness.
Man that would be a good fight, kid rock and tommy lee?? I'd pay on pay-per-view for that. But wait, can tommy beat up anybody beside's pam? I'd like to see tommy try and kick KR in the stomach like he did Pamela while she was breastfeeking. Tommy is a weak woman beating punk. Yeah Kid Rock!! (He's from my town)
And also, KR open-handed back slapped him. That's how you hit a (excuse the language) ***, hoe, woman or a sissy-boy (you know what I mean?). Its one thing to punch and man, but to "slap" him is saying a lot about his manhood, or lack of.
DAYMMM PAMELA MUST GOT SOME GOOD NOOKIE!!
BIG CRAFTY IS BACK IN THE *** HOUSE. KID ROCK REPRESENTS THE D. THATS DETROIT IF YOUR SLOW.
this is ridiculous kid rock hit tommy-lee and they throw out tommy? there is never a good reason for physical violence. kid rock needs to stop blaming tommy-lee because pam's not into him. i would say "tommy-lee must have some good stuff" but, kid rock might kill him then. i'm from detroit and kid rock is just another suburban kid jocking off detroit talent. he thinks he is entitle just because.
u should see the video its funny as hell ashanti was rite there in the middle she jumped and moved so fast then nelly got her towards him tryn to make sure she was safe
Ooh I must see it when they repeat the show.
Two dumb poser *** fightin' over an ol' broke-down ho!
WHY THE HELL THEY FIGHTING? Pam done already PIMPED BOTH THEY A$$ES. And LEFT both of them,,, LOL..she is off the hook. But she got them in CHECK if they fighting and she aint with NEITHER one LOL ...yaaay one time for the whitefolk!
Kid Rock is a punk azz bytch! Man up and stand up to a *** when you step..real talk! And you know what....he just mad cuz he ain't get that byotch knocked up!
Tommy continued to smash Pamela long after they got divorced..hell I would still hit Tommy off too..I think hes sexy, plus hes PACKIN!!!! but seriously, theyre fighting over some trick that is infected with Hepatitis-C..Kid Rock is a punk and hes just mad because Tommy is an icon in the rock world and he cant sell records anymore.. I never understood why Kid Rock became famous in the first place..a white trash "rapper"/ "singer"..he cant sing or rap..now people finally woke up and realized he has no talent..hes washed up and done..TOMMY, YOU CAN STILL GET IT BABYYYYYY!!!!
matman, that's horrible about the Jena 6.
THEM "HEP C" CARRYING GROWN AZZ BOYS, BETTA QUIT WIT ALL THEM LOVE TAPS AND ENJOY THE LITTLE LIFE THEY HAVE LEFT ON THIS EARTH!
WHAT IF KID ROCK TOOK TOMMY LEE CHIN OFF AND BLOOD *** OUT OF HIS MOUTH...
THAT WOULD OF BEEN PUTTING DIDDY & WHO EVER ELSE IN HARMS WAY!
ESPECIALLY, IF TOMMY LEE'S TAINTED FLUIDS GOT ON DIDDY'S FACE, HAIR, ETC...
IT'S A GROSS THOUGHT, BUT DATZ REAL SH*T!
They are both EX's so they need to chill...

KID ROCK PUT THAT DETROIT SMACKDOWN ON TOMMY...
