Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil has been arrested for DUI --

To hear that a legendary rock star and lifetime party guy got popped for driving his exotic car under the influence in and of itself is not very shocking.

The problem is, a week before his arrect, Neil had made a big deal press announcement claiming his sobriety.

What really happened?

Who knows, but here is the story as far as we know.

AP news just announced:

Neil, who last week had declared his sobriety, was arrested on drunken driving charges after getting pulled over by police in his Lamborghini near the Las Vegas Strip.

The 49-year-old rocker was taken into custody about 11:15 p.m. Sunday when he was stopped in the black sports car after leaving the Las Vegas Hilton hotel, Officer Bill Cassell said. Neil was released Monday after posting $2,000 bail.

Attorney David Chesnoff called it "premature" Monday to respond to the charge until he and attorney Richard Schonfeld collect information about the arrest.

Cassell, a Las Vegas police spokesman, said details of Neil's arrest would not be publicly released, and a police report would not be made available during the investigation.

If more substantial information is released, we'll keep you posted.



Motley Crue is well known as one of the top Glam Rock Hair Metal bands of the 1980s.

Their drummer, Tommy Lee, is the ex-husband of Heather Locklear. He has also been married to Pamela Anderson -- most recently being famous for competing on Dancing With The Stars.
