Kid Rock appears in court for assault

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, appeared in a Los Angeles court on Friday facing assault charges. The singer was accused of aiding in an attack on three men outside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in March 2008. The plaintiffs are seeking $15 million (£9.9m) in damages from Rock and his associates.

The accusers – Jose Perez, Michael Medlin and Carlos Bonilla – filed a liability suit against Ritchie, the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E., the Roosevelt hotel and Lost Highway touring in March 2008, according to E! Online,mediates Digitalspy. The men alleged that the singer and his entourage kicked them and ordered that their cameras be taken away.

Bonilla and Perez are celebrity photographers, though Medlin earns a living by selling celebrity autographs and photos to dealers. The men reportedly asked for Rock’s autograph. Ritchie, who testified in his own defense, denied any wrongdoing and recounted that the scene was “chaotic”.
