Authorities are investigating an attempted burglary at Kid Rock’s Detroit-area home.

Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe says security cameras caught a man ramming a gate with a white van Wednesday afternoon on the Clarkston property, north of Detroit. The man then tried to break into the house, but failed to do so. McCabe said in a release the man was on crutches.

Kid Rock is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the man’s arrest.
