Man Busted on Kid Rock's Tour Bus

A man traveling aboard Kid Rock’s tour bus was charged with drug possession after a concert in West Palm Beach.

Kevin Joseph McMahon, 36, who identified himself as the rap-rocker’s personal assistant, was arrested and released Sunday from St. Lucie County Jail after posting $16,000 bond. Kid Rock and members of his band weren’t on the bus, police said.

McMahon and the bus driver were the only people aboard the vehicle, which was headed to Nashville. Kid Rock and his band, which opened a concert for Aerosmith on Saturday, were flying to Nashville, police said.

McMahon could not be reached for comment. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer.

Authorities were tipped by a driver who said drugs were aboard the bus. Police stopped the bus was stopped on Florida’s Turnpike and did a top-to-bottom search.

No police officials were available to elaborate on the driver’s tip.

McMahon was carrying cocaine, and a drug-sniffing dog found a package of rolling papers, a marijuana joint and $3,717 in cash in a silver metal briefcase, according to the police report. McMahon told police the drugs and paraphernalia were his.

Kid Rock, whose real name is Bob Ritchie, is engaged to actress Pamela Anderson (news).
