The frontman for a popular rock band has been charged with battery in connection with a brawl on the Las Vegas Strip. TMZ.com reports that Vince Neil, lead singer for Motley Crue, was charged with misdemeanor battery and faces a maximum of six months in jail.
“Vince allegedly went off on an autograph seeker, grabbing her by the hair and pulling her to the ground,” TMZ reports. “Vince claims the woman got all aggro on him and all he did was push past her. Our law enforcement sources say they have surveillance video showing he manhandled her.”
Actor Nicolas Cage, with whom Neil had reportedly just eaten lunch, then got into a scrape with Neil, according to the report. The AP cites cellphone video taken by a bystander, saying Cage physically restrained Neil before police arrived.
The incident took place April 7 outside the Aria resort.
The AP notes that Neil, 55, was ordered to appear July 27 in Las Vegas Justice Court.
