Motley Crue: Vince Neil Vegas battery trial delayed

Looks like Motley Crue's Vince Neil doesn’t take his court time seriously.

Maybe his lawyer doesn’t, either…who knows for sure, but neither of them were in a Las Vegas courtroom today for what was scheduled to be the start of the rocker’s bench trial on a misdemeanor battery charge involving his ex-girlfriend, Alicia Jacobs, on March 24 at a show at the Las Vegas Hilton.

The Las Vegas Sun reports one of Neil’s backup attorneys asked the court for an “emergency continuance” of the trial. Attorney Saraliene Smith Durret, who was appearing on behalf of David Chesnoff, Neil's attorney, didn't explain what the emergency was, but the prosecutor did not object.

Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa granted the request and reset the date for 8:30 a.m. November 7.

Neil is facing a charge of battery constituting domestic violence for allegedly poking Jacobs, 45, in the chest with his finger. He has also pleaded not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly harassing Jacobs' friends, Patricia McCrone, 41, and John Katsilometes, 45, who is a Sun columnist and editor. Katsilometes wrote about the incident here.

Neil is under a court order to stay away from and not to have contact with Jacobs.
