Police: Drugs Found On KID ROCK's Bus

October 21, 2002

Kid Rock's tour bus was pulled over and scoured for drugs on Florida's Turnpike just hours after the rap-metal singer performed in suburban West Palm Beach, reports The Palm Beach Post.

He and his band weren't on board the bus when it was stopped for a top-to-bottom search — including the "celebrity bedroom," according to a police report. Found: a package of rolling papers, a marijuana joint, $3,717 in cash in a silver metal briefcase and a small amount of cocaine, police said.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office charged Kevin Joseph McMahon, 36, of Lebanon, Tenn., with drug possession. He said that he was Kid Rock's personal assistant.

He left the St. Lucie County Jail on Sunday on $16,000 bond.

Kid Rock opened the AEROSMITH concert Saturday at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre.

The bus was pulled over about midnight a few miles south of the St. Lucie-Indian River county line by a sheriff's detective and the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to a police report, they had been tipped by a motorist who said drugs were aboard.

The only other person on the bus was the driver, who said the band flew to Nashville after the show.
