Musician Kid Rock in court

ATLANTA, GA (WTOC) - Robert Ritchie, we know him as Kid Rock, took the witness stand Thursday and told jurors his version of what happened at a metro Atlanta Waffle House after one of his concerts three years ago.

Jurors saw surveillance footage of the man who's suing the singer. Harlen Akins claims he still suffers from headaches from the attack.

Ritchie claims the man provoked him saying negative things about his previous girlfriends.

Kid Rock plead guilty in March 2008 to a misdemeanor charge of simple battery. The jury has not made a decision yet.
