LAS VEGAS, Feb. 16 (UPI) — Rocker Vince Neil has begun his 15-day sentence in Nevada’s Clark County Detention Center for driving under the influence and speeding, officials said.
The 50-year-old Motley Crue lead singer, former “Skating with the Stars” contestant and Las Vegas resident agreed to a plea bargain in Las Vegas Justice Court last month.
After Neil completes the sentence he began serving Tuesday, he will then serve 15 days of house arrest, pay a $585 fine, attend DUI school and take part in a victim impact panel online, the Las Vegas Sun said.
The musician admitted to police he had several glasses of champagne before he was pulled over last June for speeding and driving erratically.
The Sun quoted police as saying Neil was arrested after he failed field-sobriety and breathalyzer tests.
