Motley Crue singer due to plead in Vegas DUI case

Motley Crue singer Vince Neil is heading to court on a plea deal that gets him two weeks of jail time, plus two weeks of house arrest for driving drunk last summer near the Las Vegas Strip. Neil is due to plead guilty Wednesday morning before a Las Vegas justice of the peace to misdemeanor driving under the influence.

He's expected to begin serving his sentence Feb. 15, a week after his 50th birthday.

Neil's lawyer says Neil is taking responsibility for his actions.

The rocker could have faced up to six months in jail if he went to trial and lost his case.

Police say Neil was stopped in his black Lamborghini last summer after leaving the Las Vegas Hilton, where he owns a bar.
