Rod Stewart, son Sean charged with battery in New Year's Eve scuffle

Rod Stewart, son Sean charged with battery in New Year's Eve scuffle

At that point the younger Stewart allegedly "shoved" the guard, with Rod reportedly following with a punch to the guard's "left ribcage area".

"The group began to get loud and cause a scene and refused to follow ... instructions to leave", according to the police report.

Sean Stewart got "nose to nose" with the security guard, according to the affidavit, who told him to back away.

According to a Palm Beach police report, the altercation occurred at about 11 p.m. Tuesday at the Breakers hotel.

The Daily Mail report the British rock star has been charged with simple battery - a misdemeanour - after the incident was sparked when Stewart and his group of revellers were denied access to a private event at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

Security guard Jessie Dixon told Palm Beach police officers that Stewart's group was at the check-in table for a private party that they weren't authorized to attend, a police report said.

But, after being denied access to the event, Rod told police that 'Dixon became argumentative with his family, which in turn caused them to become agitated, ' the police report said.

Police say that the "Maggie May" singer then approached and threw a punch, striking Dixon guard in his left rib cage.

They did not immediately return a request for comment Friday.

Two female employees who were working the private event told police they witnessed Sean Stewart push the guard and saw Rod Stewart punch him in the chest, the affidavit states.

The police report details how hotel security video footage confirms the Stewart's were "the primary aggressors". Both have also made their own witness statements.

Dixon decided he wished to press charges against Stewart and son Sean and the pair were arrested.

We reached out to Rod's rep.so far, no word back.

They're due in court February 5 for their arraignment.

In 2002, Sean was sentenced to three months in jail after getting into an physical altercation with a man outside a Los Angeles restaurant.
