Vince Neil charged with domestic violence

Wow, the definition of “domestic violence” is certainly different from what I thought it was.  Vince Neil, the frontman of Motley Crue, was charged with domestic violence for poking three people in the shoulder with his right index finger, one poke each.

Yes, you read that correctly.  A single poke with a finger will get you strung up for domestic.  Allegedly Neil was shouting abuse while doing the, er, poking, and was cited for disorderly conduct as well as the domestic violence charge.  Neil is currently on probation for DUI, so this could spell more jail time for him if the judge deems it appropriate.

Bad boys certainly do attract drama – Vince Neil, lead singer of Motley Crüe, has been accused of assaulting a woman in a Las Vegas hotel over Labor Day weekend.  The woman, Jessica Radovicz, was staying in the Las Vegas Hilton when she spotted Neil in an elevator.  Recognizing him, she asked him where she knew him from.  She claims Neil then grabbed her by the arms and threw her against the wall… for no reason.

Sound like BS?  That’s because it is.  Hotel security reviewed the elevator surveillance recordings, and apparently saw no such attack.  Local police agreed with the assessment, and the matter was dropped.  That’s not to say that Neil is a good boy, however – he’s already got a pending DUI charge and a destruction of property charge to deal with.  Perhaps Miss Radovicz saw an opportunity and decided to try to take advantage.  However, this is 2010, and she should have known that what happens in Vegas… can always be verified by camera

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.
