Rap-rocker Kid Rock was arrested in Nashville, Tennessee yesterday morning on assault charges.

The singer, 34, was charged with simple assault - a misdemeanour - after allegedly punching DJ Jay Campos in Christie's Cabaret stripclub in the early hours of this morning.

Nashville Night Court Commissioner Howard Taradash set bond at $3,000 (€2,300) for the star, who remains in custody until bail is posted.

Local police sergeant James Smith says: "Inside the establishment there was a squabble concerning, I guess, the selection of music. Again there are no major injuries but an assault did take place."
