ATLANTA — Musician Kid Rock was arrested Sunday after a fight in a Waffle House restaurant just days after he scored his first No. 1 album on U.S. pop charts, police said.

DeKalb County police said they arrested Rock, 36, and five members of his entourage at 5:15 a.m. after an argument with a man escalated into a fight.

"Rock along with five members of his entourage were charged with one count of battery, which is a misdemeanor. The victim . . . was treated and released at a local hospital for his injuries," said Mekka Parish, spokeswoman for DeKalb police.

The Waffle House pressed charges against the man involved in the fight with Rock's entourage after a window was punched out, Parish said. The fight started inside the restaurant and ended in the parking lot, she said.

She said Rock had given a concert in Atlanta earlier in the evening, and left the scene on his tour bus after the fight. He was stopped and arrested about a mile down the road, Parish said. He was released on bond later Sunday.

Rock scored the first No. 1 album of his career Wednesday with "Rock N Roll Jesus."
