LAS VEGAS – Less than six weeks after being released from jail on a drunken driving charge, Motley Crue singer Vince Neil is facing two new misdemeanor criminal charges in Las Vegas. Could these new charges keep the singer from performing at Red Rock Station in June?
A criminal complaint filed Tuesday accuses the 50-year-old Neil of poking his finger into the chest of ex-girlfriend Alicia Jacobs in a casino lounge late March 24.
He’s also accused of cursing and pointing or poking at Jacobs and two friends who were with her.
Neil’s lawyer, David Chesnoff, tells The Associated Press there are two sides to the story, and that Neil will plead not guilty to the battery and disorderly conduct charges. He’s due May 2 in Las Vegas Justice Court.
Neil was freed from Clark County jail Feb. 25 after serving 10 days for driving drunk last summer near the Las Vegas Strip.
