A 43-year-old white male tried to break in to musician Kid Rock’s home in Clarkston, Michigan on Saturday.
The suspect was arrested after tips lead to his arrest, after being caught on the rocker’s security cameras.
The man used his Ford van to ram through Kid Rock’s gated property, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.
Security cameras show the man ramming his way through the gate and attempting to break into a building on the property.
Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, posted photos from the security camera footage on his website. It shows the man, who was on crutches, and the van on his Independence Township property.
Kid Rock took to his blog to warn any potential burglars.
In a post entitled “Don’t mess with a M**********r Like Me”, Kid Rock writes, “Thank God I was not on the property at the time of this attempted break in. I am an avid hunter and marksman and I will not hesitate to shoot anyone who has myself or family in fear for our lives.”
He included security camera pictures of the intruder and a description and offered a $5,000 reward for information.
The 42-year-old singer adds, “I take the invasion of my personal space very seriously regardless of who you are and YES, I do profile people. I am currently profiling any balding white male on crutches driving a white creeper van. Please contact the Oakland County Sheriff Tip Line at 1.800.773.2587 with any information on this jackass. I am offering a $5k reward for any information leading to his arrest. Thank you in advance. Kid Rock (sic).”
