The man who attempted to break into Kid Rock's home has been arrested

The 42-year-old star, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, launched a public appeal along with a $5,000 reward after security footage showed a man on crutches trying to gain entry to his property in Clarkston, Michigan, and the 43-year-old intruder has now been arrested following two tips to the local sheriff.

According to Undersheriff Michael McCabe, the man was arrested at his home in Oakland County's Independence Township, north of Detroit.

A 1994 Ford Club Wagon van, which was used to force open the gate, was also recovered and impounded.

Following the attempted break-in, the furious musician took to his blog to warn other would-be intruders that he will not hesitate to shoot them.

In a post entitled 'Don't mess with a M**********r Like Me', he wrote: "Thank God I was not on the property at the time of this attempted break in. I am an avid hunter and marksman and I will not hesitate to shoot anyone who has myself or family in fear for our lives.

"I take the invasion of my personal space very seriously regardless of who you are and YES, I do profile people (sic)."
