LAS VEGAS (AP) — Rock ‘n’ roller Vince Neil is due to plead guilty before a Las Vegas judge to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge and pay a $1,000 fine stemming from a confrontation with his ex-girlfriend last March at a Las Vegas lounge.

Neil’s lawyer, David Chesnoff, says the 50-year-old Motley Crue singer will be spared trial on a more serious misdemeanor charge of battery constituting domestic violence.

That charge will be dropped after Neil’s guilty plea Monday in Las Vegas Justice Court.

Neil could have faced a year in jail if he was convicted of both charges.

He had been accused of poking the chest of Las Vegas entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs in a casino comedy club last March 24, and of cursing and pointing at Jacobs and her two friends.
