Kid Rock's assistant, Michael Sacha, 30, was found dead the early morning of April 25, 2016, after an ATV accident at the musician's Nashville home. According to police, Sacha drove two people down the property's driveway to meet an Uber driver at midnight. He apparently crashed while riding the ATV back to the house and was eventually found by Kid Rock and a friend. The singer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, released a statement on his website describing Sacha as "a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with."
