June 28, 2010

According to, MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil was previously arrested in 2007 on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol but he managed to work out a deal with prosecutors in which he pled no contest to reckless driving in exchange for having the DUI charge dropped.

Las Vegas law enforcement sources tell TMZ.comNeil was arrested in January 2007 after cops noticed Neil performing some erratic maneuvers in his Ferrari.

According to Nevada state law, people who are convicted of DUI twice in seven years must serve anywhere from 10 days to six months in jail.

Neil was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada last night (Sunday, June 27) on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Neil, 49, was booked at the Clark County Detention Center and faces one count of DUI-Liquor, Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell told CNN. He was arrested at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday.

The singer was also allegedly involved in an incident in front of a Hilton hotel where a fan said her camera was broken, Cassell told CNN. Police are investigating that incident.

Vince was sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years' probation after an accident in 1984 in which Neil also was driving under the influence. That crash caused the death of Neil's passenger, HANOI ROCKS drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley.
