Told reporters last
week that he’s been sober for years. With that little detail out of the way, it
was time to start partying THIS week, apparently. Love that barbed wire in the
photo above, btw.

You gotta love those deliberately provocative, mildly
misleading headlines that folks use on the internet to get your attention… at
any rate, cutting to the chase: Billboard.com reports this morning that Motley
Crue’s Vince Neil was busted in Las
Vegas late Sunday evening for DUI. He was pulled over
by police while driving his Lamborghini near the Strip, then was released on
Monday after posting bail. He’s due in court Sept. 27.
The mug shot:
His attorney declined to issue a statement yet, and the
Vegas police said they would not be releasing details of the arrest.
“In an interview last
week with the Associated Press about a tell-all book due out in September, Neil
said he hadn’t used drugs in 20 years and had stopped abusing alcohol. ‘There’s
just a point in your life where you kind of stop, that’s what happened with me,’
Neil had said. ‘There’s other things in life than just drugs and alcohol.’
“Neil said he admired the sobriety of top performers today. ‘Those are the guys
that are doing it right,’ he said. ‘It’s the ones that self-destruct with the
drugs and alcohol that have gone by the wayside many years ago.'”
Apparently there are other things in life than just drugs
and alcohol – for example, there’s “just alcohol”….
