Rocker Vince Neil pleads guilty in Las Ve­gas bat­tery case

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Mot­ley Crue front­man Vince Neil has pleaded guilty to mis­de­meanor bat­tery for a side­walk scuf­fle in­volv­ing a woman out­side a Las Ve­gas Strip re­sort in April.

De­fense lawyer Richard Schon­feld said Fri­day the plea was sub­mit­ted in writ­ing Thurs­day in Las Ve­gas, and the 55-year-old rocker didn’t ap­pear in court.

The judge fined Neil $1,000 and or­dered him to un­dergo im­pulse con­trol coun­sel­ing and stay out of trou­ble for six months.

Schon­feld says Neil is glad to put the case be­hind him.

Neil was ac­cused of grab­bing the woman and pulling her to the ground.

Mot­ley Crue is known best for hard par­ty­ing, fa­mous girl­friends and 1980s-era hits like “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Dr. Feel­good.”
