Legendary rocker Rod Stewart will appear in a Palm Beach County courtroom today after being accused of punching a security guard who refused to allow the singer’s family into a private event on New Year’s Eve at the Breakers on Palm Beach.
Stewart and his 39-year-old son were charged with battery stemming from the incident.
The younger Stewart allegedly first pushed the guard before his famous dad delivered a punch to the security guard’s left rib cage area.
A Palm Beach police officer reviewed video of the incident and identified Stewart and his son as the “primary aggressors.”
Stewart is due in court at 9:00 a.m.
