Rocker Vince Neil pleads guilty in Las Vegas battery case
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.”
