MTV Awards

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- It wasn't exactly a rumble in the jungle, but more like a pawing at the Palms Hotel and Casino.

Las Vegas police have cited Kid Rock for misdemeanor battery after he allegedly slapped and punched Motley Crew drummer Tommy Lee at last night's MTV Video Music Awards ceremony.

The two combatants are ex-husbands of Pamela Anderson, who was a presenter during the show.

A witness say Lee was sitting with entrepreneur and rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs and apparently started things because he felt Kid Rock was ignoring him.

After the incident, security guards let Kid Rock stay for the rest of the show while Lee was dragged out -- but Kid Rock was the one who was charged.
