Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil pled guilty in a Las Vegas court on Thursday to misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an incident in the city on April 7.
Neil is accused of dragging an autograph seeker to the ground by her hair during a lunch with actor Nicolas Cage at the Aria Hotel.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Neil’s guilty plea via his lawyers – the rocker did not appear in court – is part of an agreement with prosecutors over a 120-day suspended sentence that includes a $1,000 fine, an online impulse-control counseling class and six months of trouble-free activity.
Should Neil fail to comply with any of the conditions of the agreement, he could face 120 days in jail.
“Mr. Neil was pleased to put this behind him,” said the singer’s attorney, Richard Schonfeld.
The singer and/or his representatives will return to court on January 19 for a status check in the case.
Neil has been on the road playing dates across North America this year after Motley Crue wrapped up their farewell tour at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last New Year’s Eve.
