If you’re eating, you might want to skip this one.

Over the weekend, a man was arrested outside Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville for hitting two police officers.

The weapon of choice? His colostomy bag.

Police were initially called to the bar on Saturday evening because the man was reportedly drunk and being disorderly.

When police arrived on scene, things quickly escalated, and he caused a stink.

“Male took off his colostomy bag and started swinging it at others, some units have feces on them,” Nashville Scanner tweeted Saturday.

“Dispatch also advising central was out twice with this unit tonight, keeps refusing medical,” they concluded.

Moments after the Twitter thread went live, it was posted onto a local gossip Facebook page where it eventually went viral. It also found its way onto TikTok, where it got even more attention.

“Omg! I heard about this! Happened so early in the morning I think it was around poo-thirty lmao,” one TikTok user wrote.

Another quipped: “So just a normal night at a Kid Rock concert.”

The man has since been charged with assault on the two Metro police officers, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

When he was booked, police described him as being unable to stand straight on his own. He also had bloodshot eyes, and smelled strongly of alcohol.

The second most surprising part of this story, for us, is that Kid Rock has a bar and steakhouse. We had no idea.

According to local reports, the bar was throwing “a huge party ... to celebrate the mask mandate being lifted.”

It’s definitely an evening where masks would have been useful.
