Motley Crue singer swings plea deal in Vegas battery case

Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil will plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge and pay a $1,000 fine related to an alleged domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that, as part of a plea deal, Clark County prosecutors will drop one count of domestic battery in exchange for Neil's guilty plea to disorderly conduct, District Attorney David Roger confirmed.

Neil, 50, was seen yelling obscenities at, and poking, former local television entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs at the Las Vegas Hilton in March.

Neil's defense attorney, David Chesnoff, said, "Mr. Neil is sorry he raised his voice."

Jacobs, 45, was with several friends who witnessed the singer’s obscenity-laced tirade on her, as well as the battery-related poking , which reportedly left a bruise.

Neil and Jacobs split in March after a seven-month relationship. At the time, Jacobs issued a statement that the breakup was because of "the decisions Vince continues to make."
