Vince Neil Arrested For DUI (Again)

Vince Neil, the 49 year old lead singer of Motley Crue, was arrested in Las Vegas overnight on suspicion of drunk driving.  This is an even bigger issue than it might be for other celebrities because in 1986 Neil was convicted of vehicular manslaughter as a result of getting into a serious car accident in Redondo Beach that killed his friend and fellow musician, Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley.  

The two had been partying with friends at Neil's house nearby and had jumped in Neil's luxury sports car, wasted, to drive to a liquor store to buy more booze. Neil, whose blood alcohol level was later measured at 0.17, lost control of his car and hit an oncoming one, serious injuring the occupants of the other car and killing his passenger, Razzle. 

In July 1986 Neil was sentenced to 30 days in jail after agreeing to pay $2.5 million in  restitution to the victims and their families.  He was released after serving only 15 days for good behavior.
