Rod Stewart's Son Arrested In L.A.

Rod Stewart's 26-year-old son was arrested this week on charges he assaulted a couple with a brick.

Sean Stewart was taken into custody Tuesday on a warrant charging him with four felony counts, including assault with a deadly weapon, throwing a substance at a vehicle and vandalism, the district attorney's office said.

Stewart, who was released on $60,000 bail, was scheduled to be arraigned July 3.

The couple involved filed a lawsuit against Stewart last month stemming from the April 22 incident, which allegedly took place outside a party at a home in the Hollywood Hills.

Stewart's attorney, Peter J. Korn, said the incident is "much different" than what's been alleged in the complaint and suggested the lawsuit was financially motivated.

"Our investigation has shown that the alleged victim only named Sean Stewart as a suspect after hearing that Mr. Stewart was at the party that night and that the alleged victim had a financial motive to make these allegations against Mr. Stewart," Korn said in a statement to celebrity news Web site

Stewart is one of the stars of the A&E reality show "Sons of Hollywood."
