Cops on the Hunt for

Kid Rock

After VMA Fight

9/10/2007 1:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909_lee_rock_fm_breaking-1TMZ has learned that the Las Vegas Police Department is on the hunt for Kid Rock after he allegedly "clocked" Tommy Lee at the MTV VMAs in Las Vegas Sunday night.

According to security at the Palms Hotel, where the awards took place, the LVMPD has asked for Rock's room number at the hotel and any leads they might have regarding his current whereabouts.

Details as to what started the fight are still sketchy, but an eyewitness at the awards tells TMZ that "Tommy got it pretty bad."

Both Kid and Lee were escorted out of the awards by Palms security moments after the altercation, caught on camera by Reuters photographer Steven Marcus, took place.

TMZ has learned that Palms owner George Maloof was questioned by police, who was overheard telling cops, "I have no idea."

According to the AP, rap producer Rich Nice was an eyewitness. He says that although Kid Rock threw the only punch that landed, it was Tommy Lee who started the fight. "It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him," said Nice, who was two tables away. "And Tommy Lee kind of antagonized him. And then when Tommy Lee stood up, it looked a little weird, like 'Yo, what?"'

"When Tommy stands up is when Kid hit him the first time with a backhand," Nice continued. "And then Tommy Lee looked like he was trying to get at him to aggressively retaliate and then Kid Rock hits Tommy Lee again -- bong. And then security grabs Tommy Lee in a headlock and pulls him off."

Clearly Pam loved the attention. She could have just ignored it but she kept saying "Shut up Tommy!" "Tommy!" Bob Rock sucks anyway.

Well, it's better that Tommy hits Kid Rock instead of Pam again. Tommy deserves it, after all, he has been washed up waaay longer than Kid Rock.

What does "on the hunt" mean? Wanted for questioning or is there an actual warrant for his arrest? More details, less talking up.

Ain't no town like Motown....If they tallied all the Rock and Pop Musicians and Bands, Actors, Comedians and Celebrities that come from Detroit, Ann Arbor and the Toledo Metroplex......Many of whom people aren't even aware of...I figure the entertainment industry owes it's existence to SE Michigan.

Both of these slimy creeps are so hideous it freaks me out to think of being touched by either of them. They should put them in a small room with one brick, and let them kill each other off. Seriously.

Actually, Tommy Lee got beat up when he was in Detroit for the Superbowl too. Considering it's a recurring theme for him, I wouldn't be surprised if it was well deserved. Kid Rock is from Romeo, an upper class suburb of Detroit. So he's about as trailer park as a banker is. Heh.
