Brian Keith could face 5 years in prison for attempted break-in at musician's home

PONTIAC, Mich. - A man accused of trying to break into musician Kid Rock's suburban Detroit home pleaded no contest Wednesday to attempted home invasion and property destruction charges.

Brian Keith was charged with attempted home invasion, malicious destruction of a building more than $1,000 and malicious destruction of personal property more than $1,000. The 43-year-old Independence Township man could be sentenced to 5 years in prison. His sentencing will be Sept. 25.

Keith was arrested Aug. 3 after surveillance photos from security cameras on Kid Rock's Clarkston property were released.

The photos showed a man ramming the gate July 31 and trying to break into the house. Kid Rock was away at the time. The musician was offering a reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest.

Keith has previous drunken driving and fraud convictions.
