New court date for Motley Crue singer’s DUI case

A Las Vegas judge has set a new court date for Motley Crue’s Vince Neil to address his DUI and speeding charges from an incident back in June.

Neil’s lawyers were in a Vegas court on Monday when a judge set October 11 as the next date for follow-up on the case; no plea was entered on Vince’s behalf.

On June 27, Neil was picked up for suspicion of DUI in Las Vegas (see original story here, mug shot here and police report details here) after his Lamborghini was pulled over for driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone and for "weaving between the lanes."

At the time, TMZ reported that Vegas Police department files indicated the Vince failed a field sobriety test three times due to a blood-alcohol level almost three times the legal limit.

Neil — who admitted to having consumed three glasses of champagne at the Hilton hotel earlier in the night — eventually gave up by saying, "I can't do this," the report stated. Vince was then asked by the officer to take two breathalyzer tests and, according to the police report, he registered .215 and .216 — nearly three times the .08 limit.
