Motley Crue singer Vince Neil pleaded guilty today in Las Vegas Justice Court to misdemeanor disorderly conduct, avoiding a more serious charge of battery constituting domestic violence.

The charge stems from an incident in which Neil was accused of harassing his ex-girlfriend and her friends following a show at the Las Vegas Hilton last March.

As part of the plea agreement, Neil will pay a $1,000 fine and the battery charge will be dropped. An allegation of physical contact was also dismissed, and the record was amended to state that Neil “pointed at” instead of “poked” Alicia Jacobs, his ex-girlfriend.

Neil, 50, did not appear in court and was represented by his attorney Richard Schonfeld. Schonfeld said that Neil paid the court fine Monday and the case is closed.

According to the arrest report, on March 24 Neil entered the Shimmer Cabaret at the Las Vegas Hilton and confronted Jacobs, who had ended their relationship two weeks earlier.

Neil allegedly pointed his index finger and yelled profanities at John Katsilometes, a Sun columnist and editor, and Patricia McCrone, who were with Jacobs that night, the report said.

Neil also allegedly poked Jacobs in the right shoulder, police noted in the report. After Neil left, Hilton security was alerted and Metro Police were contacted.
