Kid Rock poked fun at his recent Waffle House scuffle in Atlanta during an appearance on pal Ellen Degeneres' chat show - by presenting her with a T-shirt from the restaurant. The rocker/rapper was arrested and charged with a misdemeanour of simple battery after the scuffle early on Sunday (21Oct07). But the Devil Without A Cause hitmaker was all smiles as he showed off his scarred knuckles to DeGeneres after presenting her with a Waffle House `Eat My Grits' T-shirt. Speaking publicly for the first time since the incident, he said, "We were celebrating, we had a great show that night. We were hungry, it was late at night, we had been doing some drinking. "I know people work hard at the Waffle House, so I tipped people behind the counter, I gave them $300 (GBP150) to split up, bought everyone breakfast in there. "We were having a good time and this one kid just started... and then one thing led to another and windows were broken, you know, cussin' and fussin' in the mud, the blood and the beer." Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, knew he was heading for trouble when the youth who started on him said he was hoping for a fight - so he could sue the star. He adds, "I said, 'Take a number!'"
