Footage of Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil and actor Nicolas Cage locked in a scuffle has surfaced online.

The incident apparently began when the pair were interrupted at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas by a woman who allegedly asked Cage for an autograph.

According to TMZ, details are unclear but Neil allegedly got behind the woman, grabbed her by the hair and pulled her to the ground.

Cage was then seen trying to restrain Neil to calm him down, taking him outside the hotel and into a car, in a clip you can watch below.


Neil was not arrested but was cited for battery, a spokesperson for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said.

Earlier, this year Motley Crue played the final show of their career, finishing up at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The show marked the conclusion of 34 years of the band, who went through years of turmoil in the early part of the century, having formed way back in 1981. The band signed a legally binding agreement to stop playing together almost two years ago, and have been touring since, playing 164 dates on a world tour since heading out in July 2014.

The final show opened with Rodgers and Hammerstein song 'So Long, Farewell', and closed with Frank Sinatra's 'My Way', bracketing Crue classics and a cover of Sex Pistols' 'Anarchy In The UK'. 

Nikki Sixx has spoken of the tumultuous early days of the band, saying "I was in turmoil for so long, to be honest with you, that I just thought that was life."
