Motley Crue: Police called after Vince Neil incident in Las Vegas

As a rumored regular at hotel bars around Las Vegas since the end of his recent 10-day jail stint and 15-day house arrest for a DUI, Vince Neil hasn’t exactly been keeping a low profile.

Now, the Motley Crue frontman is in trouble again, following an incident in Vegas Thursday night.

TMZ is saying that a battery report was filed against Vince after an alleged altercation with his ex-girlfriend.

Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports comedian Hal Sparks’ show had just started at the Hilton’s Shimmer Lounge late Thursday when Neil, 50, rushed up to a table and began shouting obscenities at former girlfriend Alicia Jacobs, Wayne Newton’s publicist Tricia McCrone and Las Vegas Sun writer John Katsilometes.

Statements were taken from Jacobs’ group and others. Neil had a glass of champagne in his hand as he poked and berated the group, reported Clarke.

Sparks reported the incident on his Twitter site:

“Sooooo... Vince Neil storms into my show.. Yells FU at 2 women.. Gets pushy... Cops get called... Good times #thiswontstayinVegas”

Police were summoned. Neil's red Ferrari bearing the license plates "WYLDSIDE" license was spotted in valet at the Hilton.

Jacobs was seen leaving the Hilton accompanied by security after being interviewed. She had dated Neil for seven months. Jacobs issued a statement Friday, saying, "it was a very shocking incident. I wish I knew what prompted his anger, but I have no idea. Vince's decisions continue to concern me. I really hope he can move forward and find peace in his life."

Jacobs, the entertainment reporter at KSNV-TV, Channel 3, said she has a bruise from Neil jabbing at her with his finger.
