Vince Neil

Rocker Vince Neil was given a three-month delay today for his trial on a misdemeanor battery charge involving his ex-girlfriend, Alicia Jacobs, on March 24 at a show at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Neil, 50, the frontman for Mötley Crüe, was scheduled to have a bench trial on the charge in Las Vegas Justice Court, but one of his attorneys asked the court for an “emergency continuance” of the trial. Attorney Saraliene Smith Durret, who was appearing on behalf of David Chesnoff, Neil's attorney, didn't explain what the emergency was, but the prosecutor did not object.

Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa granted the request and reset the date for 8:30 a.m. Nov. 7.

Neil is facing a charge of battery constituting domestic violence for allegedly poking Jacobs, 45, in the chest with his finger.

He has also pleaded not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly harassing Jacobs' friends, Patricia McCrone, 41, and John Katsilometes, 45, who is a Sun columnist and editor. Katsilometes wrote about the incident.

Neil is under a court order to stay away from and not to have contact with Jacobs.

  1. He poked his girlfriend in the chest with his finger?
    And they need to go to the expense of a trial for this? Just jail him for 10 days and boot his ass out of the state.
