Motley Crue’s Vince Neil’s DUI case headed to trial

Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil is headed back to court…again.

Vince’s attorney entered “not guilty” pleas on behalf of Neil in a Las Vegas court today in response to misdemeanor drunken driving and speeding charges; Neil did not have to appear in person for this part of the process.

Vince's trial is set for January 6, 2011.

On June 27, Neil was picked up by Vegas police 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.
