Las Vegas police officer Barbara Morgan confirmed Vince Neil’s arrest on suspicion of DUI to CBS News. No other details of the rocker’s arrest have yet been released.

This is not the first time Vince Neil has been in trouble with the law over allegedly driving drunk. Neil lost control of his car in 1984, striking another vehicle. Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley, who was a passenger in Neil’s car, was killed. Two people in the vehicle struck by Neil were seriously injured.

Neil was charged with vehicular manslaughter and DUI following the crash and sentenced to 30 days in jail, five years probation and 200 hours of community service. He was also ordered to pay $2.6 million in restitution to the victims of the accident.
