Motley Crue's Vince Neil: assault investigation closed

There’s one less court case for Motley Crue’s Vince Neil to deal with following news that the investigation into his alleged assault on a woman in a Las Vegas elevator last month has been closed due to insufficient evidence, according to a report by Contactmusic.

As we told you last month (see “Motley Crue’s Vince Neil accused of assault” here and “Vince Neil’s assault allegations ‘completely unfounded’” here), Jessica Radowicz filed a police report claiming she was manhandled by Neil when she recognized him in an elevator at the Las Vegas Hilton resort, and the alleged altercation left her shaken up and bruised.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officials launched an investigation but have now closed the case, insisting surveillance video doesn't support the alleged victim's story.

A spokeswoman says, "The video does not show evidence of the victim being pushed. Furthermore, the alleged victim refused to make a statement, so the case has been cleared out."

Hilton hotel bosses had already dismissed the Californian woman's claims after conducting their own investigation into the matter.

Vince still has to deal with DUI and speeding charges stemming from an incident back in June (see “Vince Neil in jail” here and “Motley Crue’s Vince Neil: DUI update” here for more details); the case returns to a Vegas courtroom next Monday (11) for arraignment.
