Motley Crue singer Vince Neil is taking a plea deal that will get him two weeks of jail time plus two weeks of house arrest for driving drunk in his Lamborghini near the Las Vegas Strip.
An aide to the Clark County District Attorney said Tuesday that the 49-year-old rocker has agreed to plead guilty Jan. 26 to misdemeanor driving under the influence. Heâ€™s due to begin serving his sentence Feb. 15.
â€œI have recognized that you canâ€™t drink and drive at all,â€™â€™ he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
In 1984, Neil killed a passenger when he crashed his sports car. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter, served 20 days in jail and agreed to pay $2.5 million to victims. AP
