Vince Neil of Motley Crue to Serve Jail Sentence


Vince Neil accepted a plea deal with the Las Vegas prosecutors that will send him to jail for two weeks, followed by two weeks of house arrest in accordance with his arrest on DUI charges last summer. According to sources, Neil has agreed to plead guilty to the misdemeanor charge when he appears in court on January 26th. Had he not taken the deal offered, he could have spent up to six months in jail.

Neil was stopped on June 27th, 2010 near the Vegas strip after he had left the Las Vegas Hilton. He was driving his black Lamborghini when he was pulled over. Neil had declared sobriety only one week before the arrest. In Suffolk and Westchester Counties, police are always on the lookout for drunk drivers.

Vince Neil lives in Las Vegas with his fourth wife. He was the singer and front man of the famous 1980’s metal band, Motley Crue. According to a New York Criminal Lawyer, Neil owns two tattoo shops and two bars in Las Vegas. He reports that he hasn’t used drugs in twenty years, and has stopped abusing alcohol. He recently wrote a tell-all book entitled, “Tattoos & Tequila: To hell and Back With One Of Rock’s Most Notorious Frontmen.”

A NYC Criminal Lawyer explains, this is not Neil’s first time serving time for driving under the influence. He served 30 days in jail and had a five-year probation in 1986 following a car wreck in 1984, which killed Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley, drummer for the Hanoi Rocks. Neil was charged with a DUI and vehicular manslaughter because of the accident.
