Kid Rock -- Stogie Break in Waffle House War

9/14/2010 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kid Rock found time to fire up a big, fat cigar outside a Georgia courtroom today -- where Kid faced off with a man suing him over a crazy brawl at a Waffle House a few years ago.

Kid is being sued by a dude named Harlen Akins -- who claims the rock star should fork over more than $6,000 for battering him mercilessly during an early morning rumble back in October 2007.

091410_kid_rock_fight_2Rock's attorney claims the singer and his entourage were merely defending themselves -- but today, several witnesses testified that Team Rock pummeled Akins ... and continued to bash him even after he was unable to defend himself.  

The incident was caught on tape by Waffle House security cameras -- check it out for yourself.

Hope Kid's got a good Lawyer, after watching the video it looks like his entourage started it and assaulted the man!

He got what was coming to him. He was obviously a mouthy punk who thought K-Rock couldn't handle himself and would back down.

(((SURPRIZE!)))

"Go to sleep dreamer".

He also might have been look'n for a lawsuit? But he looks to dim to come up with that ruse.

Kid Rock is all tuff with all his security around. He'd probably run away like a little girl if he was alone in the room with that guy.

Only a cowards beats up a dude in a 10 on 1 fight.

Don't mess with Bobby - I've known him since we were kids. It takes a lot to provoke him, but he is a Detroit bad-ass. Mess with him enough and he will fight back. He and the DBT's like to hit Waffle Houses for breakfast after a show, and they ALWAYS buy breakfast for everyone in the place and tip enormously. By the way, I liked the way he punched Tommy Lee at some awards show several years back and Tommy ran like a girl!

If I remember correctly in a past interview from Kid Rock...the guy was running his mouth quite a bit. However, the tape seems to show whatever verbage is being tossed out of the instigators mouth is clearly getting under Kids skin and he resorts to physical violence. However, we do not see what took place BEFORE or AFTER the footage in the tape...so who knows. Whatever the deal...if the settlement if for approx. 6k...that's peanuts to Kid. We are big Kid Rock fans, and the guy certainly knows how to rock an audience...so my advice..don't sweat this small stuff...pay the guy his 6k and move on..it's chump change to the KID.

He's going to trial over $6,000? His attorney fees for trial will be more than that. Stupid decision.

I'm sorry. This video does not prove the presumed ****-talker got the beat down. Proves Kid's bodyguards rushed him out of the waffle house to prevent an ass whoopin' instead.

I live in the same state that Kid Rock does, and the problem; they love his dirty-drawers here- so this is why not much will happen. Clearly, Kid Rock was pissed, and felt brave with his people, and he went after this guy physically- there was no self-defense here...lol Have to learn that being a star, comes with the highs and the lows- should have sent out for chinese.
