Comedian Hal Sparks, who was performing at the Las Vegas Hilton last Thursday night (March 24) when MÖTLEY CRÜE's Vince Neil allegedly shouted obscenities at the singer's former girlfriend Alicia Jacobs called Neil's behavior "unnecessary," "stupid" and 'mean-spirited." "I don't think you can write off that kind of behavior just on being drunk," Sparks told Las Vegas radio station Mix 94.1.
Jacobs, who works as a TV reporter in Las Vegas, left Neil on March 15, less than a month after the singer served 10 days of a 15-day jail sentence for DUI.
Sparks said Jacobs had a visible bruise on her arm from Neil poking her.
"What goes through your head that goes, 'I'll show them, I'll walk into the middle of the show where they're in the audience, yell (expletive), poke them both and walk out,'" he said. "What kind of drunk logic is that? If you're going to be a real (expletive), don't do it in public," he added.
According to TMZ.com, Neil insists he didn't touch Jacobs and that he might file charges against her.
"Videotapes would easily prove that not true," Jacobs said, "and at least 10 people gave statements to [the police]."
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.
The rocker pled guilty in Las Vegas Justice Court in January and spent 10 days in jail, followed by another 15 days of house arrest. He was also ordered to pay a $585 fine and attend DUI school and a victim impact panel online.
