Vince Neil Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct
As expected, Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil has pleaded guilty in Las Vegas Justice Court to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. The charge stemmed from an incident last March in which Neil allegedly harassed his ex-girlfriend Alicia Jacobs and her friends after a show at the Las Vegas Hilton. Had Neil not pleaded guilty, he would have faced a more serious charge of battery constituting domestic violence.
Neil was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine. The plea bargain stipulated that the battery charge and and an allegation of physical contact would be dropped. Also, the wording of the record was modified to indicate that Neil "pointed at" instead of "poked" his ex.
Neil was represented in court by his attorney Richard Schonfeld, who stated that Neil paid the court fine on Monday and the case was closed. Neil did not have to appear in court.
The police report stated that on March 24 the singer entered the Shimmer Cabaret at the Las Vegas Hilton and confronted Jacobs, who had ended their relationship two weeks prior. Allegedly, Neil pointed his index finger and swore at John Katsilometes, a columnist and editor for the Las Vegas Sun, and Jacobs' friend Patricia McCrone.
