Motley Crue: Vince Neil denies new drinking and driving rumors

Has Vince Neil really learned anything about drinking and driving?

That’s the question on the minds of onlookers who have witnessed the Motley Crue singer drinking at Las Vegas hotels following the recent completion of his house arrest and incredibly short 10-day jail sentence for a DUI there last June.

John Katsilometes of Las Vegas Weekly's The Kats Report says Neil's car has been spotted parked prominently at the valet of a couple of the singer's favorite Las Vegas hotels, the Las Vegas Hilton and the Palms, on nights when Neil has been reportedly been seen drinking champagne by guests at both hotels.

"Insinuations of me drinking and driving are completely false," Neil told The Kats Report in a text message. "Last I heard, it is not illegal to have a drink in this city. I am not on probation or under any drug and alcohol rules. I am not required to check in or submit to any type of testing. I did my time and am getting on with my life. If my car is in valet at night, the question is, is it still there in the morning? I am always provided rides home if I want, or a room. Do not assume anything. I will not respond any further on this subject. I do not have to defend myself on rumors."

Neil's girlfriend Alicia Jacobs left him last week, less than a month after Neil was released from jail. "Due to the decisions Vince continues to make,” Jacobs said, “it is necessary that I end our relationship of seven months. I wish him happiness and good health."
