By August 5, the British BBC broadcasted to law enforcement authorities along with his son Sean, 39, who reported that rock singer Rod Stewart, 74, had beaten a security guard at a hotel in Florida, late last year. He reported that he had been prosecuted. He was ordered to appear in a state court on February 5.
Stewart and his colleagues argued on December 31 last year that they were trying to enter an unauthorized event at a hotel they stayed in. It is alleged that Stewart had beaten his chest after Sean pushed a guard.
The hotel claimed to police that Stewart and others were loud and upset. Stewart, meanwhile, explained that he had been refused entry and was upset, and expressed an apology. [Joint]
