Motley Crue rocker Vince Neil will stand trial in January after pleading not guilty to misdemeanor drink driving and speeding charges stemming from an arrest in Las Vegas in June. Neil's lawyer entered the plea on his behalf in Las Vegas Justice Court on Monday, October 11.
The rocker, who was not present for the hearing, is accused driving his luxury Lamborghini sports car 60 miles per hour (96.6 kilometers per hour) in a 45 mile per hour (72.4 kilometers per hour) zone near the Vegas Strip, while over the legal alcohol limit. Neil's trial is scheduled for January 6, 2011.
Back in December 1984, Neil was also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and vehicular manslaughter after hitting a vehicle while he returned to his Redondo Beach, California house after visiting a liquor store. Because of the collision, Neil was sentenced to 20 days in jail and ordered to pay $2.5 million in restitution.
