Rock (real name: Bob Ritchie), 36, who played a sold-out show Saturday night in Atlanta, and five members of his entourage were taken into custody facing a misdemeanor charge of simple battery.

Police say Kid Rock stopped by a restaurant early Sunday after their show, and a male customer recognized a female in Rock's entourage. Words were exchanged, and a fight ensued, the station reports.

After police were called, the singer's tour bus was pulled over, and he and the members of his entourage were arrested. In addition to Rock's arrest, the male customer also has been charged with a felony for allegedly smashing a window of the restaurant.
