Tommy Lee is escorted out of MTV Awards

Kid Rock allegedly assaulted Tommy Lee at the MTV Video Music Awards last night. The two ex-husbands of 'Baywatch' beauty Pamela Anderson came to blows at the Las Vegas awards ceremony in the Pearl Theatre at the Palms Casino Resort. According to reports, the incident started when Lee, who was sitting at P. Diddy's table, muttered something to Rock as he walked past him on his way to introduce the final performance. Rock hit Lee twice before security pulled the two men apart. Rock, who still had his cigar in his mouth - was held back briefly while Lee was escorted by security straight out of the venue. Rap producer Rich Nice, who witnessed the event, said: "It looked like Tommy initiated the fight because Kid was ignoring him. Tommy started to antagonise Kid, and then when Tommy stood up Kid hit him first with a backhand."Tommy looked like he was trying to aggressively retaliate and then Kid hit him again. Security then grabbed Tommy in a headlock and pulled him off."Las Vegas Police Department later questioned Rock. He was not arrested but was issued with a summons for misdemeanour battery and must return to Las Vegas for a future court date. If convicted, he faces a $500 fine and up to six months in jail.
