The man who claims musician Kid Rock and his entourage beat him and smashed his cell phone testified in court that he still doesn't know why the fight happened.
Earlier, Robert James Ritchie, better known as Kid Rock, testified that he exchanged some tough words with Harlen Akins at suburban Atlanta Waffle House but didn't start fighting until provoked.
The musician and five members of his entourage are being sued by Akins over the 2007 fight. Kid Rock and Akins both took the stand Thursday.
Kid Rock pleaded guilty in March 2008 to a misdemeanor charge of simple battery.
The musician stopped at the restaurant following a performance in Atlanta. The fight broke out after Akins recognized a woman in Kid Rock's party and spoke to her. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
