There's more to the arrest of Kid Rock in Nashville. As we reported yesterday, he was arrested and charged with simple assault for allegedly punching a disc jockey at an adult entertainment club near downtown Nashville. The incident was reported around 3 a.m. Feb. 16. But here's what happened before the arrest: After attending Tuesday's memorial service for Hank Williams Jr.'s manager Merle Kilgore, Kid Rock, Hank Jr., Travis Tritt, Big & Rich, Aaron Tippin and about 20 of their entourage went for a $7,000 dinner at The Palm. Then Kid Rock and John Rich decided to hit Bourbon Street [a club] on Printer's Alley. As they left-to go to the strip clubs-Kid Rock was driving John's new Corvette and got pulled over by a Vanderbilt University police officer for speeding. The starstruck officer got an autograph from Kid Rock instead of giving him a field sobriety test. The officer was later fired for giving preferential treatment to a celebrity.
