Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil has plead guilty to DUI in Las Vegas, reports TMZ. It’s also very likely he will spend two weeks in jail.
Neil was pulled over by police in June. Officers found his blood alcohol level to be three times the legal limit. Neil’s plea deal includes 15 days in the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, followed by 15 days of house arrest.
It will be interesting to see how he will do in jail.
Perez Hilton has reported that Neil blew over three times the legal limit this spring, failing several field sobriety tests with multiple attempts. The 80s star put in a good effort but eventually told police “I can’t do this.”
Well, at least he’s an honest guy!
Aside from failing the traditional breathalyzer test, the report also comments that the rocker “reeked” of alcohol, and that Neil confessed to consuming 3 glasses of champagne.
Heh. But seriously: 3 TIMES the legal limit, Mr. Neil? That must have been some really strong champagne.
Vince Neil will be arraigned on September 27th. Hopefully he’ll have sobered up by then.
Don’t drink and drive, everyone!
TMZ reports that the singer is currently in custody at the Clark County Jail and has had is bail set at $2,000.
This is not the first time Neil has had legal trouble in recent years. In 2002 he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a music producer. In 2003 he plead no content for allegedly attacking a prostitute at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Nevada. In 2004 he was arrested for hitting a sound engineer at a Texas show.
It may come as no surprise, and we may have lost count, but Pamela Anderson and ex, Tommy Lee, are trying to make it work as a couple.
Gossip columnist Perez Hilton reports that Lee told Rolling Stone magazine: “Pamela and the kids have moved in with me. It’s awesome, man. It’s definitely working. You can tell on the kids’ faces — they’re happy when we’re together. We’ve only given it a try 800 times — 801, here we go.”
The couple divorced a few years ago and since then, Anderson, 41, has remarried twice. The Canadian star has been married to rocker Kid Rock and Rick Salomon, who is known famously for making a sex tape with socialite Paris Hilton.

Motley Cr?e drummer Tommy Lee suffered minor burns when a pyrotechnics display backfired while the band was performing in Wisconsin this past week.
The accident occurred towards the end of the show, when Lee was suspended 30 feet above the stage. According to audience members, he was injured when sparks from the fireworks display temporarily surrounded him.
After the incident, Lee managed to play one more song before the group ended the show so that the injured drummer could be taken to the hospital.
Neither the Wyoming Medical Center, nor Lee?s publicist, commented on his injuries, but he was not badly injured, said Sgt. Doug Beran of the Casper Police Department
Despite Lee’s injuries, the band, who had three more US shows scheduled over the weekend, announced they would not be cancelling any tour dates.
