Former Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge, and the case will go to court in September.

He’s accused of misdemeanour battery after an incident in Las Vegas in April, which included actor Nicolas Cage and comedian Carrot Top.

A woman, thought be hunting autographs, claims that Neil grabbed her by the hair when she approached the trio at the Aria Casino-Hotel.

Neil, 55, didn’t appear in court when his plea was entered yesterday (July 27). His representative, David Chesnoff, said: “We’re going to do our own investigation, which we’ve already started. I ask people not to prejudge situations until all the facts come out.”

Justice Of The Peace Cynthia Cruz set September 19 as the trial date.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
