Kid Rock is helping an Ohio pizza delivery driver critically injured during a robbery.

Spokesman Nick Stern says the rock star sent the delivery driver a $1,500 check after reading about the attack in The Cincinnati Enquirer while in town last month for a concert.

Twenty-eight-year-old Harry Colyer, of suburban Harrison, told police he was beaten with a brick and a wooden plank July 20 while on a delivery. He has had reconstructive surgery on his broken cheekbones and smashed nose and now has a slight hearing loss.

A 20-year-old man and two teens have been charged in the attack.

Colyer says he didn't ask for the check but it was a nice thing for Kid Rock to do.

Stern says the musician likes to quietly help people in need.
