PONTIAC, Mich. - A man who authorities say tried to break into musician Kid Rock's suburban Detroit home has pleaded no contest to charges.
Brian D. Keith entered the plea Wednesday to attempted home invasion, malicious destruction of a building and malicious destruction of personal property in Oakland County Circuit Court. It's not an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing Sept. 25.
The Detroit Free Press reports defense lawyer Douglas Oliver told a judge that Keith was so drunk he didn't recall what happened.
The 43-year-old Keith was arrested Aug. 3 after surveillance photos from security cameras on Kid Rock's Clarkston property were released. The photos showed a man ramming the gate July 31 and trying to break into the house. Kid Rock was away at the time.
