In the saga of the Tommy Lee verus Kid Rock scuffle at the recent MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), MTV.com sheds some more light on the events of that night and even has a video capturing the tail end of the confrontation (viewable here or below).

The former Pamela Anderson flames Kid Rock and Tommy Lee traded words in a heated exchange during Alicia Keys' performance at the Video Music Awards, resulting in both rockers being escorted by security out of the Pearl Theater in the Palms Casino Resort.

Security quickly detained both men, with Lee being immediately removed from the venue. Rock, with his cigar still in his mouth, was held back momentarily until Lee left and calmly walked out alongside security.

"I never hit nobody for nothing before," Rock was overhead saying in the lobby of the casino. "I told him to shut the f--- up."

According to a spokesperson for the Las Vegas Police Department, Rock was cited for misdemeanor battery for his assault on Lee. Rock was not detained or taken into police custody but was issued a summons. He'll need to return to Vegas for a future court date, and if convicted, he faces a $500 fine and up to six months behind bars.

This is killing the whole point of the f***ing internet. a$$holes. Man this is really starting to get on my nerves. The scary part is it's only going to get worse.

Anyway, so I can't watch the video to get an better idea but.. was this a no-smoking event? If so, then Kid Rock walks around with an unlit cigar in his mouth. Way to go, bud.
