Rod Stewart has been charged with battery after getting into a fight with a security guard at a children’s party on New Year’s Eve.

Stewart and various members of his family attempted to gain entry to the party at the Palm Beach Hotel in Florida but were told that they and the young children with them would not be able to attend.

After this, police report that Stewart and his 39 year old son Sean became involved in an altercation with security guard Jesse Dixon. Sean is said to have pushed Dixon before Rod punched him in the ribs. Both sides apparently say the other started it – although video footage may prove the key decider.

Both Rod and Sean Stewart have now been charged with “simple battery” and ordered to appear in court in Palm Beach next month.
