KID ROCK Headed To Court For Allegedly Assaulting A Strip-Club DJ

Emanuella Grinberg of Court TV is reporting that Kid Rock (mug shot) will appear in a Nashville courtroom Wednesday (March 30) to enter a plea on an assault charge stemming from a strip-club brawl in February.

Born Robert James Ritchie in Romeo, Mich., the rapper-rocker was arrested at 7 a.m. on Feb. 16, 2005, for allegedly punching DJ Jeremy Campos at the Nashville strip club Christy's. Ritchie was enjoying a night out in Music City after attending a funeral for deceased country legend Merle Kilgore.

Rock could face up to 11 months in prison if he goes to trial.

But court officials say misdemeanor assault cases such as his rarely make it to trial and often result in probation sentences.
