On January 26th Vince Neil will be pleading guilty to a drunk driving charge from back in June and then head off to jail.  Neil will surrender himself on February 15 then proceed to spend 15 days in Clark County Detention Center.

Neil admitted after the June arrest that he knew he shouldn’t have drove, it was just an act of stupidity.  No one was hurt, but he was well over the legal limit.  This isn’t the first time he has been in trouble with the law.  In 2007 he was arrested for suspicion of a DUI but the charges were later dropped.

This will be the second time Neil will be serving some jail time.  He was sentenced to 30 days in prison in 1984 after crashing his car while drunk driving.  In that incident he killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle.  Neil sited in Motley Crue’s autobiography The Dirt that he has never gotten over killing his friend.

Of the current charges and sentencing Neil said:

I have recognized that you can’t drink and drive at all, I take full responsibility for my actions and will learn from this experience.

- Neil in his statement to the media Tuesday

Hopefully he means it this time.  At this point is it to late for him?  Has he been spoiled by his fame?  I hope that 15 days in jail is a wake up call for Vince, and right now it seems like it might be just what he needed.
