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."

Gee, #65, that's not very nice, wishing violence on another person, who was just expressing an opinion, especially since you term yourself a "flower child". Oh, but that's right, "flower people" are very selective-they believe in peace and love, just as long as they happen to agree with the person towards whom the sentiment is directed. Typical-and I'll bet anything that you're from California.

Well, here's a little something to "LOL" about-while you're wishing violence on someone you don't even know, for reasons I cannot even fathom, the next time there's a plane crash, I'll be hoping that you and the rest of your family are some of the passengers.

How's that for LOL?! Funny, I know! Ha Ha Ha!! ,

I highly doubt Kid was just sitting there minding his own.
as I recall he made derogatory public remarks about Pam after she left him and had their marriage annulled, that was childish and stupid. I am no Pam an but I thought that deserrved a hit in the mouth.

Kid Rock went to a rich private school and wore a briefcase handcuffed to his arm at the time. He might be trash - but never mistake his life as ever being without wealth.

Publicity stunt. No arrest, no charges filed yet. Does Pam have a new book, show, perfume, web site or video coming out? All three will share in the $.

Two losers that should be in nursing homes. Utterly and completely worthless individuals who have nothing to offer whatsover. They only seek attention with their idiotic pranks.

YOU TALK ABOUT NOT WISHING VIOLENCE ON ANOTHER PERSON BUT YET YOU DID IT WITH THE PLANE CRASH COMMENT.As I SAID BEFORE YOUR HUSBAND WAS RIGHT WHEN HE CALLED YOU A HYPOCRIT AND HE IS A VERY SMART MAN AND HAS TO BE CRAZY TO PUT UP WITH YOU.

GO TO MTV AND YOU WILL SEE A VIDEO THAT SHOWS THE TWO BEING PULLED AWAY. IT SAYS THAT KID ROCK WAS WALKING OVER TO DIDDY BECAUSE THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE PRESENTING ANAWARD AND TOMMY LEE POPPED OFF SOMETHING SO KID CLOCKED HIS ASS. TOMMY LEE WAS TAKEN AWAY AND WHEN HE WAS KID WAS LET GO AND WALKED OUT WITH SECURITY. HE WAS CITED FOR MISDEMEANOR AND WAS SUMMONS TO COME BACK FOR A FUTURE COURT DATE AND IF CONVICTED COULD RECEIVE 500 DOLLAR FINE AND JAIL TIME.
