Listen to Tommy Lee on iHeartRadio

Tommy Lee is being sued.  The Motley Crue drummer is being accused of assault stemming from an incident on a Florida beach last summer. 

Lawyer Robert Dixon, who's representing Freddy Hernandez, has issued a statement saying his client was met with violence when he encountered Lee on the beach last July and began taking photographs of the rocker. 

He claims Lee "touched and/or struck Freddy Hernandez without his permission, by hitting his camera, while Mr. Hernandez was holding said camera."  He says Mr. Hernandez suffered injuries as a result. 

The suit was recently filed in Palm Beach County circuit court.  Dixon doesn't specify what he and Hernandez are seeking in damages.
