Rod Stewart, 74, and his son allegedly shoved and punched the guard after he refused to allow the younger members of Stewart's group into a private children's event.

Police have assessed video footage of the incident and identified the Stewarts as "the primary aggressors," Sky News reported.

The singer reportedly apologized for his behavior.

Neither he nor his representatives have publicly commented on the dust-up.
