PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Kid Rock has been called for jury duty in suburban Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press reports the musician was among 160 potential jurors Thursday for a murder trial at Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac.

Kid Rock, who was born Robert Ritchie and lives in suburban Detroit, read a paperback to pass the time as he waited with other potential jurors. It’s not clear if others in the potential jury knew who he was.

The newspaper says the three defendants are standing trial and the case will require three juries.
