RALEIGH, N.C. - Uncle Kracker pleaded guilty Friday to a misdemeanor assault charge in an incident last month at a Raleigh nightclub.

A Wake County judge sentenced the singer, whose real name is Matthew Shafer, to 12 months' probation, fined him $1,500 and ordered him to undergo an alcohol assessment.

Assistant District Attorney Adam Moyers said Shafer put his hand up a woman's skirt at the nightclub. The 26-year-old woman slapped Shafer, and he slapped her back, Moyers said.

The woman later reported the incident to an off-duty police officer.

Shafer, a 33-year-old Michigan native, is a former disc jockey for Kid Rock. His hits include a duet with Kenny Chesney, "When the Sun Goes Down."

O. K. I'm just getting here today. First of all Uncle Kracker should not have touched that young lady ANYWHERE and she should have jumped up and beat the heck out of him!! He should still be hurting so bad he wouldn't be able to PAY the fine!! Fined for what he did!!! It's an insult to the judicial system in NC. IMO, these things happen because some people have the attitude of "Who cares" or "She was asking for it by being there". Well, I beg Uncle Kracker's pardon but right is right and wrong is wrong. The only one right in this case is the girl.

As far as B. Spears and Friends, file it in the bottom drawer. Not worth the space in the paper when Uncle Krackers are on the loose!

Look on the bright side, Pete. At least we are no longer having wall-to-wall coverage of Paris.

Sometimes we have to settle for small blessings, huh?

I thought Uncle Kracker was an identity you have assumed since moving south. Or was that Cousin Redneck?

Harry, I hope you're not implying that people who live in the South are rednecks.

Of course he had to be from Michigan... How much more bashing can this poor state take? BTW, you can find plenty of rednecks right up here ya'all!

Yee-Haw! (I ain't one o' em') honestly.
