BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Singer Rod Stewart Friday pled guilty to one count of battery following an incident at The Breakers on December 31st., 2019.
Stewart’s Boca Raton Attorney, Guy Fronstin, issued the following statement to BocaNewsNow.com:
“Sir Rod Stewart was charged with simple battery. No one was injured in the incident and a jury did not find Sir Rod Stewart guilty of the accusation. Instead, Sir Rod Stewart decided to enter a plea to avoid the inconvenience and unnecessary burden on the court and the public that a high profile proceeding would cause. In resolving the case, Sir Rod Stewart was not convicted, nor sentenced to jail, or placed on probation.”
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Police Report explains what investigators say happened when the singer and his family attempted to enter a private childrens’ event at The Breakers.
“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.”
Rod Stewart was ordered to pay $575 in court costs and $100 for the cost of prosecution. He was not present for the hearing.
