Report: VINCE NEIL Accused Of Elevator Assault On Woman

According to TMZ.com, an "adult woman" has filed a misdemeanor battery complaint with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in which she claims MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil "pushed her in an elevator" at the Las Vegas Hilton around 9:50 p.m. on Sunday night (September 5).

The matter is currently under investigation, the police tells TMZ.com.

TMZ.com reported over the weekend that Neil failed three field sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol level almost three times the legal limit during his June 27, 2010 Las Vegas arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Neil has been charged with DUI and speeding and is set to be arraigned on September 27.

Vince was previously arrested in 2007 for suspected DUI but worked out a deal in which he pleaded no contest to reckless driving in exchange for having the DUI charge dropped, according to TMZ.com.

Nevada state law says that people convicted of DUI twice within seven years face anywhere from 10 days to six months in jail.

The singer lives in Las Vegas, where he owns a chain of tattoo shops and a restaurant at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Neil was sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years probation in 1984 after an accident in which he crashed his car, killing passenger Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley of the band HANOI ROCKS. Neil was driving under the influence at that time.

Neil also pleaded no contest to a charge of assaulting a music producer in 2002, and again pleaded no contest in 2003 to charges he attacked a prostitute at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Nevada. In 2004, an arrest warrant was issued after he allegedly hit a sound engineer at a show in Texas.

Vince Neil's 320-page hardcover autobiography, "Tattoos & Tequila: To Hell and Back with One of Rock's Most Notorious Frontmen", is scheduled for release on September 23 via Grand Central Publishing.
