MÖTLEY CRÜE's VINCE NEIL Denies Grabbing Woman By Hair

April 11, 2016

According to TMZ, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil has denied dragging an autograph seeker to the ground by her hair, but Las Vegas police say the surveillance video shows he did enough damage to warrant a citation.

Sources close to Neil told TMZ the woman was "very aggressive" in her efforts to get an autograph from Vince and actor Nicolas Cage, who were having lunch last Thursday (April 7) in the ARIA resort and casino. Vince reportedly admitted he was annoyed and "pushed past her," but insisted he did not grab the woman by her hair.

The video posted by TMZ on Friday that showed Neil and Cage fighting in front of the hotel was filmed after they were held for an hour by security and police had already ticketed Neil for battery.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told TheWrap.com that Neil was cited after a call came in from the hotel at 5:24 Thursday evening. A female made a report to the police that Neil approached her, grabbed her by the hair and jerked her to the ground.

Neil was released at the scene, police said, and is scheduled to appear in court on June 17 for the alleged assault on the woman.

The singer's attorney, David Chesnoff, told the Daily News he is still investigating the incident.

"All I've seen is that there was an allegation of a simple misdemeanor battery," he said. "People shouldn't pre-judge things until all the facts are in."

The night before, Vince was was seen checking out the newly opened T-Mobile Arena in Vegas with friends, including former "Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous" host Robin Leach.

Cage and Neil are longtime friends who were previously photographed together at the rocker's strip club back in 2012.
