Neither Rod or his son will face jail time.
Rocker Rod Stewart and his son Sean have pleaded guilty to battery nearly three years after their arrest amid a New Year’s Eve 2019 scuffle with hotel security, according to reports.
“No one was injured in the incident and a jury did not find Sir Rod Stewart guilty of the accusation,” Guy Fronstin, attorney for the 76-year-old icon, said in a statement, according to the AP.
Stewart decided to enter a guilty plea “to avoid the inconvenience and unnecessary burden on the court and the public that a high-profile proceeding would cause,” Fronstin added.
The pair pleaded to simple battery, a misdemeanor, according to court records released Friday. The deal will save Stewart and his 41-year-old son by former wife Alana Stewart from having to appear in court.
According to Fronstin, they will not have to pay any fines, or serve any probation either.
