You'd think that with a criminal history of committing manslaughter while drink-driving, Motley Crue
frontman Vince Neil
would face a serious penalty for once again hitting the bottle and Las Vegas on June 27.
Some of our readers were outraged
with the short jail-term of 15 days plus 15 days house arrest Neil received, but it seems even two weeks behind bars was too long.
Neil has been released after only 10 days and a $585 fine, to presumably finish his sentence at home.
The conditions of his release are unknown, but despite his criminal history, it doesn't seem like the singer appreciate the severity of his offence, telling the Las Vegas Sun "They were a little harsh in the sentencing. But they wanted to make an example of me, and that's what it is.
Will Neil really learn his lesson? He's once been quoted as saying "I don't endorse drinking and driving, I endorse driving responsibly. I made a tragic mistake that cost one of my dear friends his life.
Let's hope he acts on his own advice before planning his solo live dates and Motley Crue tour in the future.
Thanks to Billboard
for the report.
