PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL ( — Singer Rod Stewart, whose full name is Roderick David Stewart, has received a Palm Beach County Court hearing notice for March 26th.

Stewart, 76, is charged with simple battery following an altercation at the Breakers back on December 31st, 2019. Stewart is alleged to have punched someone working at the hotel who wouldn’t let members of Stewart’s family into a private event.

“I made contact with Roderick Stewart,” wrote the PBSO Deputy in the report, “who stated he and his family approached the check-in table and attempted to have the children in their group gain access. R. Stewart stated that after being denied access, (the victim) became argumentative with his family, which in turn caused them to become agitated. R. Stewart apologized for his behavior in the incident.”
