New trial date set for Vince Neil in Las Vegas battery case

Posted September 19

— Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil's trial has been postponed in a misdemeanor case alleging he grabbed a woman and pulled her to the ground in April outside a Las Vegas Strip resort.

The 55-year-old rocker didn't appear in court Monday. His lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, told a judge that a key defense witness wasn't available this week.

The judge reset trial for Oct. 20.

Schonfeld wouldn't say outside court whether the witness is actor Nicolas Cage.

Cage was seen in bystander video physically restraining Neil last April 7 outside the Aria casino-hotel.

Neil could face up to six months in jail if he's convicted of misdemeanor battery.

Motley Crue is known best for hard partying, famous girlfriends and 1980s-era hits like "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Dr. Feelgood."
