Motley Crue singer Vince Neil arrested for drunk driving
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and was being held in a Las Vegas jail, police said on Monday.
Las Vegas police had few details of the arrest but Neil, 49, was expected to appear in court later on Monday.
Celebrity website TMZ.com said Neil's car was pulled over late on Sunday night after police received a complaint from a woman who alleged Neil had smashed her camera earlier in the evening.
The arrest comes just a week after Neil released his latest album -- "Tattoos and Tequila" -- featuring cover versions of classic rock songs.
Neil, who split with Motley Crue in 1992 and rejoined the band in 1997, served jail time in 1986 for drunken driving after a car crash that left a drummer dead.
In the past few years he has opened a string of bars and restaurants in Las Vegas and Florida.
