Kid Rock has been question by police after he attacked Tommy Lee at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards. Rock, real name Robert James Ritchie, was ejected from the ceremony in Las Vegas in front of thousands of fans after punching the Motley Crue drummer. And while no arrest was made, Las Vegas Metro Police did question Ritchie, reports TMZ.com. Both rockers have married former Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson - and although the actress was at the event it is unclear if she was the cause of the fight. Rap producer Rich Nice says, "It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him. 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. 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." Lee married Pamela Anderson in 1995, before divorcing three years later - while the former Baywatch beauty filed for divorce against Rock just four months after they wed last August.

Kid Rock has been ordered by Las Vegas police to appear in court next month following his attack on rocker Tommy Lee at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. Rock, real name Robert James Ritchie, was ejected from the Nevada ceremony in front of thousands of fans after punching the Motley Crue drummer. Although neither star was arrested at the time of the incident, both rockers were later questioned by local authorities with Ritchie receiving a citation for the assault. A spokesman for the Las Vegas Police Department tells TMZ.com, "A little after 8.00pm last night we received a call that a disturbance had occurred at the MTV Video Music Awards. We had a lot of officers working in and around the awards so they got her fairly quickly. We determined that the altercation was between Kid Rock and Tommy Lee. After our investigation, Kid Rock did receive a citation for misdemeanor battery. Everyone involved was interviewed." Ritchie will appear in court in the next three to five weeks, where he faces a maximum sentence of six months behind bars. Both Lee and Ritchie have been married to former Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson, but it is unclear whether she was the cause of the fight.
Kid Rock has demanded his ex-wife Pamela Anderson return her $500,000 wedding ring. The rap/rocker - who divorced the Baywatch star after a three month marriage last year - believes Anderson should hand back the ring now she has re-married. Rock says, "Maybe she'll send my ring back. I doubt it, but, boy, that would be nice." Anderson married Rick Salomon in a Las Vegas ceremony on Saturday night after a brief courtship.
Kid Rock will not be charged with any offense following his fight with Tommy Lee at the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas last month. The rap/rocker was cited for misdemeanor battery after hitting his former love rival Lee at the televised event. But Lee asked for the matter to be dropped and officials have now decided not to press charges. Chief Deputy District Attorney Ron Bloxham says, "It should be noted that Tommy Lee has requested that there be no prosecution relating to the incident and there were no injuries to either person."
