Vince Neil completes DUI sentence; battery charges remain

Vince Neil completes DUI sentence Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has completed the sentence requirements stemming from a drunk driving arrest last summer, but charges in a separate domestic violence case still remain.

A Las Vegas judge closed the DUI case Tuesday, Neil attorney David Chesnoff told the Associated Press. In January, Neil pleaded guilty to driving drunk in his Lamborghini last June near the Las Vegas Strip.

Neil, who had been sentenced to 15 days in jail, served 10 days in the Clark County jail last February and another 15 under house arrest. He also paid a $585 fine and completed drunk-driving and victim-impact counseling.

Neil also made a $500 donation to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, a court spokeswoman said.

In 1984, he served 20 days and paid $2.6 million in restitution after pleading guilty to drunken driving and manslaughter in connection with a crash in Redondo Beach that killed the drummer of the band Hanoi Rocks and critically injured two people in another car.

The 50-year-old singer did not have to appear in court for the hearing Tuesday.

However, not all of his legal woes are over. The musician is also facing misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct charges in a separate case involving ex-girlfriend Alicia Jacobs. Jacobs filed a criminal complaint last month accusing Neil of poking his finger into her chest during a March 24 altercation in a casino showroom.

He is set to arraigned in Las Vegas on May 2.
