Sir Rod Stewart could avoid trial – and possible jail – for allegedly punching a bouncer.
THE 75-year-old star and his son Sean, 40, deny battery after an altercation with hotel bouncer, Jessie Dixon, 33, in Palm Beach Florida on New Year’s Eve.
It now appears their lawyers are close to a deal with prosecutors, a court was told.
The resolution could involve a plea deal, with lighter charges or a more lenient sentence in exchange for a guilty plea, reports The Sun, which would avoid the risks and expense of a trial.
An agreement can also be made without a guilty plea, in which case the defendants may, for example, carry out community service with the charges dropped once it is completed.
The security guard is seeking compensation, claiming he was pushed by Sir Rod’s wife Penny Lancaster, before being punched in the “left rib cage area” by the singer after he refused them entry to a private party on December 31, 2019.
Mr Dixon told police Sean went ‘nose-to-nose’ with him when they were turned away.
