MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer Pleads No Contest To Battery
A lawyer for MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil entered a no contest plea to misdemeanor battery in an assault involving a record producer outside a Sunset Strip nightclub last year, according to the Associated Press. Neil, whose given name is Vincent Neil Wharton, was not at the hearing yesterday (April 7) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
A Superior Court judge ordered the 42-year-old singer to complete 100 hours of community service, pay restitution, and go through a booking process, which would place his fingerprints on file with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The charge came from a fight on April 28, 2002, at the Rainbow Bar and Grill in West Hollywood with record producer Michael Schuman. The two men had never met before that night. Schuman's attorney, Trent Copeland, said Neil came up to Schuman in the club's parking lot and struck him several times in the face. His client fell and broke an elbow when he hit the ground, Copeland said.
