LAS VEGAS — Motley Crue singer Vince Neil will take a plea deal and serve two weeks of jail time, plus two weeks of house arrest, for driving drunk in his Lamborghini last summer near the Las Vegas Strip.
Neil agreed Tuesday to plead guilty to misdemeanor driving under the influence when he appears before a Las Vegas judge on Jan. 26, said Tess Driver, an aide to Clark County District Attorney David Roger.
Neil’s publicist, Jill Siegel, released a statement on Neil’s behalf.
“I have recognized that you can’t drink and drive at all,” it said.
Neil’s lawyer, David Chesnoff, noted that Neil could have faced up to six months in jail and said there were legal defenses to the charge.
“Mr. Neil recognized that he needed to take responsibility for his actions,” Chesnoff said.
Driver said Neil is scheduled to begin serving his sentence Feb. 15. That will be a week after Neil’s 50th birthday.
Police said Neil was stopped in his black sports car late June 27 after leaving the Las Vegas Hilton. Less than a week earlier, he had declared his sobriety.
