Kid Rock gets probation for Waffle House scuffle

The singer must also undergo anger management counseling

Kid Rock has been sentenced to a year’s probation as a result of a fight that took place last year at a Waffle House in Atlanta, Georgia.

The chart-topping rocker was also sentenced yesterday (July 21) to six hours of anger management counseling and 80 hours of community service, reports the Associated Press.

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, allegedly became involved in a fight at the Waffle House restaurant following his performance at the Atlanta Tabernacle on October 21.

He and five of his friends reportedly challenged a male customer who recognised a woman in Kid Rock‘s party and exchanged words with her.

The singer pleaded no contest to one count of simple battery. Four counts of battery were dropped.
