Kid Rock and musician Tommy Lee had a physical altercation at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. No criminal charges will be filed in scuffle between them, the Clark County district attorney said Tuesday.
"It's worth noting that Tommy Lee requested no prosecution relating to the incident, and there were no injuries to either person," said Dan Kulin, spokesman for Clark County District Attorney David Roger.
"The Clark County district attorney's office will not pursue a battery charge against Robert James Ritchie, also known as Kid Rock, involving a confrontation with Tommy Lee on Sept. 9, 2007, at the Palms Hotel and Casino," Roger said in a statement.
Representatives for the two celebrities did not immediately respond Tuesday to requests for comment. Both are ex-husbands of Pamela Anderson, who was a presenter at the show.
The 36-year-old Kid Rock was not taken into custody, but was cited by police for misdemeanor battery after he was accused of slapping and punching the 45-year-old Motley Crue drummer in the audience at the awards show.
Witnesses said that although Kid Rock threw the only blows that landed, Lee appeared to instigate the confrontation.
Kid Rock still faces a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an Oct. 21 arrest in Atlanta. He and five members of his entourage were cited after a brawl with a male customer at a Waffle House restaurant.
