MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil has shot down as "rubbish" media reports that the Internal Revenue Service has put a $1 million tax lien on his Las Vegas home. He told Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Weekly, "There's no lien on my house," he said. "I haven't heard one thing about that. I think I'd have known about it if it goes back to April of last year. [The report is] rubbish, definitely rubbish."Neil did admit, however, that he has experienced problems in the past with his taxes, and he blamed his accountants for not getting the problems fixed. "In the past, I've had tax problems like a lot of other people, especially entertainers," he told the Las Vegas Weekly. "But there's no liens — nothing like that. I got screwed by some people a few years ago, and my accountants then messed up the way it was treated. It left me with a tax bill, but I satisfied the IRS in a deal where I pay them what they want. It's life, unfortunately, but all satisfied and settled." Neil pleaded guilty last Wednesday (January 26) stemming from his arrest last June for drunk driving on the Las Vegas strip and will spend two weeks in a Las Vegas jail, starting February 15, followed by another 15 days of house arrest. 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.
"I made a mistake, and I have to finally learn my lesson and go do a little bit of time," Neil told People.com. "I've already learned my lesson." Of his arrest, Neil said, "I just have to move on and get past it and get it behind me." Neil was convicted of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence in 1984 after he caused a car crash that killed his passenger, HANOI ROCKS drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley, and seriously injured two people in a second vehicle. He served 30 days in jail and was on probation for five years.
