Man enters plea in Kid Rock burglary
A man who authorities say tried to break into musician Kid Rock’s suburban Detroit home has pleaded no contest to the charges.
Brian D. Keith, 43, entered the plea Wednesday. It’s not an admission of guilt, but will be treated as such for sentencing Sept. 25.
The 43-year-old Keith was arrested Aug. 3. Surveillance photos showed a man ramming the gate July 31 and trying to break into the house. Kid Rock was away at the time.
