Motley Crue: Vince Neil battery trail set for August

Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil has been ordered by a Las Vegas judge to stay away from, and not to have contact with, his ex-girlfriend, Alicia Jacobs. And vice versa.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that order was given Monday by Justice of the Peace Pro Tem Linda Norvell Marquis in Las Vegas Justice Court during Neil's arraignment on a misdemeanor battery charge involving Jacobs on March 24 at a show at the Las Vegas Hilton.

The 50-year-old rocker, who wasn’t in court, pleaded not guilty through his attorneys to a charge of battery constituting domestic violence for allegedly striking Jacobs, 45, in the chest with his finger.

Neil also pleaded not guilty to another misdemeanor charge through his attorneys; that charge was disorderly conduct for allegedly harassing Jacobs' friends, Patricia McCrone, 41, and John Katsilometes, 45, who is a Sun columnist and editor.

Judge Marquis set Neil's trial for 8:30 a.m. Aug. 8 in Las Vegas Justice Court.

Last week, Neil completed all of the requirements of his sentence stemming from his DUI case from last June; the sentence ordered him to serve 15 days of jail time, 15 days of house arrest, pay a $585 fine, attend DUI school and attend a victim-impact panel online.
