Security cameras make it tough to gin up a lawsuit and peel a few bucks off a famous person:

Police were investigating a complaint by a woman who claimed Motley Crue singer Vince Neil grabbed her arms in an elevator at the Las Vegas Hilton, but a hotel executive said Thursday surveillance video showed the allegation was not true.


Neil, 49, wasn't arrested after police took statements Sunday from the woman and two other people regarding the misdemeanor battery complaint, Las Vegas police Officer Barbara Morgan said.

There’s also this:

Neil is due in court Sept. 27 on separate misdemeanor drunken driving and speeding charges. He has not yet entered a plea. He is accused of driving his Lamborghini sports car 60 mph in a 45 mph zone before being stopped June 27 near the Las Vegas Strip.

I wasn’t aware there was such a thing as “misdemeanor drunken driving.” Especially if you’re someone like Neil, who got in his car after a day of drinking, drove into oncoming traffic, crashed, killed his friend and gave the people in the other car brain damage. He blew a 0.17 and was charged with vehicular manslaughter on that little outing. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, but got out for good behavior after 15. But that was a long time ago, and perhaps he’s mellowing. Court docs said he blew 0.08 on the Vegas bust. So he’s tapering off.
