Vince Neil pleads guilty in Vegas, fined $1,000

Posted:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A lawyer entered a guilty plea for rocker Vince Neil to end a court case stemming from a confrontation he had with his ex-girlfriend at a Las Vegas lounge.

The 50-year-old Motley Crue singer didn't appear in court Monday when a Las Vegas judge accepted a plea deal in the misdemeanor disorderly conduct case. Neil's lawyer paid a $1,000 fine on his behalf.

The justice of the peace dismissed a more serious misdemeanor charge of battery constituting domestic violence and declared the case closed.

Neil could have faced a year in jail if he'd been convicted.

His attorney, Richard Schonfeld, acknowledged that Neil pointed and cursed at Las Vegas entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs and two of her friends in a casino comedy club last March 24.
