Rapper Kid Rock was arrested by Nashville police today and charged with punching a strip club disc jockey.

The 34-year-old was released after posting bail on a charge of simple assault, punishable by up to a year in jail.

“Everything is wonderful. It was a beautiful night,” Kid Rock said as he left the Criminal Justice Centre.

“Inside the establishment there was a squabble concerning, I guess, the selection of music,” Nashville police Sergeant James Smith said.

Television footage from outside the club showed the DJ, identified as Jay Campos, with a red mark on his face and holding his broken spectacles.
