MTLEY CRE singer Vince Neil pleaded guilty yesterday (Monday, November 7) in Las Vegas Justice Court to misdemeanor disorderly conduct, avoiding a more serious charge of battery constituting domestic violence.
Neil and his lawyer paid a $1,000 fine stemming from a confrontation between the singer and his ex-girlfriend at a Las Vegas casino lounge.
Vince was accused of striking his Alicia Jacobs in the chest with his finger, and of harassing Jacobs’ friends, Patricia McCrone and John Katsilometes, who is a Las Vegas Sun columnist and editor.
Neil, 50, who didn’t appear in person, could have faced up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine if convicted on both charges.
Neil in April completed all of the requirements of his sentence stemming from his DUI case from in June 2010. The sentence ordered him to serve 15 days of jail time, 15 days of house arrest, pay a $585 fine, attend DUI school and attend a victim-impact panel online.
