Motley Crue's Vince Neil to plead guilty to disorderly conduct charge

Additional domestic violence to be dropped after singer apologises and pays $1,000 fine

Motley Crue's Vince Neil to plead guilty to disorderly conduct charge
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil will plead guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct, according to reports.

UltimateClassicRock claim that the singer will pay a $1,000 (£627) fine but avoid a further trial for domestic violence following an altercation in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Neil was alleged to have forced his way into a Hal Sparks performance at a Las Vegas hotel on March 24 and poked three people with his right index finger, swearing as he did it.

According to court documents filed in Clark County, Nevada, his former girlfriend Alicia Jacobs claimed he had "forcefully poked in her right shoulder blade".

Neil, who previously insisted he had not touched Jacobs, will see the charge drops when he enters his guilty plea to the disorderly conduct charge at the Las Vegas Justice Court next Monday (November 6).

His lawyer David Chesnoff said: "Mr. Neil is sorry he raised his voice". Jacobs, meanwhile, said: "I'm glad the story is over and the book is closed".

Neil was prisoned for two weeks in January of this year after pleading guilty to drink-driving. He later claimed that his sentence had been harsh and that the courts had "wanted to make an example out of me".

In July, meanwhile, it was reported that his Motley Crue bandmate Tommy Lee and Poison frontman Brett Michaels could face gun crime charges.
