Rod Stewart’s 26-year-old son, Sean, was arrested this week on charges he assaulted a couple with a brick.
Stewart was taken into custody Tuesday on a warrant charging him with four felony counts, including assault with a deadly weapon, throwing a substance at a vehicle and vandalism, the district attorney’s office said.
He was released on $60,000 bail. Arraignment was set for July 3.
Stewart is one of the stars of A&E Network’s reality show “Sons of Hollywood.” He is the son of model-actress Alana Stewart and the 62-year-old British rocker, whose hits include “Maggie May” and “Forever Young.” They divorced in the early 1980s.
Stewart’s attorney, Peter J. Korn, said the incident is “much different” than what has been alleged in the complaint, and suggested the lawsuit was financially motivated.
“Our investigation has shown that the alleged victim only named Sean Stewart as a suspect after hearing that Mr. Stewart was at the party that night and that the alleged victim had a financial motive to make these allegations against Mr. Stewart,” Korn said in a statement to celebrity news Web site TMZ.com.
