Update: A 43-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the attempted burglary of Kid Rock's home. Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe told the Associated Press two tips led to the man's arrest. The man is currently being held in a county jail, and an arraignment is expected Monday.
American icon and living legend Kid Rock is offering a reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest of a man who attempted to break into his house outside Detroit Wednesday.
Security footage showed the man driving a white van ram into the front gate outside the home. He then got out of the van on crutches and attempted to break into the home but was unsuccessful.
The Associated Press originally reported Kid Rock was offering $55,000 to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the intruder.
But no, no, not in this economy. The reward is actually $5,000.
Kid Rock said he does not hesitate to shoot anyone who makes him or his family fear for their lives. He posted the following statement on his website:
Thank God I was not on the property at the time of this attempted break in. I am an avid hunter and marksman and I will not hesitate to shoot anyone who has myself or family in fear for our lives. I take the invasion of my personal space very seriously regardless of who you are and YES, I do profile people. I am currently profiling any balding white male on crutches driving a white creeper van. Please contact the Oakland County Sheriff Tip Line at 1.800.773.2587 with any information on this jackass. I am offering a $5k reward for any information leading to his arrest.
