Report: Police Security Cam Footage Allegedly Shows Vince Neil Pulling Woman’s Hair
Motley Crue's Vince Neil found himself in some legal trouble last week when it was reported that the rocker allegedly pulled a woman to the ground by the hair during an incident at Las Vegas' Aria Hotel. TMZ later captured an altercation between Neil and actor Nicolas Cage outside of the hotel in which Cage restrained Neil trying to get the rocker to calm down.
Neil was cited for battery in the incident, a charge that he has denied, but according to TMZ, the police records show that officers reviewed the surveillance footage which allegedly shows Neil pulling the woman to the ground by her hair.
The rocker apparently claimed that he had only "pushed past" the female autograph seeker and denies that he got physical with the woman. According to reports, the woman was initially spotted taking pictures with comedian Carrot Top before she noticed Cage. TMZ reports that she then started to move toward Cage before she was allegedly pulled down by Neil. The woman claims she suffered a sore neck as well as pain in her lower back and hip.
As for the altercation with Cage outside of the hotel, the police told TMZ that Neil was actually trying to fight another person and that the actor was playing peacemaker at the time. The skirmish was originally reported as a scuffle between Neil and Cage.
