Woman sues Vince Neil over altercation at Las Vegas casino

A California woman filed a federal lawsuit Friday against Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil, alleging he assaulted her at the Aria in April.

Kelly Guerrero, a nurse from Santa Cruz, Calif., alleges an “intoxicated” Neil pulled her by the hair to the pavement at the Aria entrance in front of celebrities Nicholas Cage and Carrot Top.

Guerrero and her Santa Cruz lawyer, G. Dana Scruggs, are seeking more than $75,000 in damages from Neil for allegedly subjecting her to emotional distress in the presence of her 14-year-old son.

The rock singer’s actions are described in the lawsuit as “outrageous” and “intentional” and part of an “ongoing pattern and practice of drunken, out-of-control violent and dangerous conduct.”

Neil, 55, faces a misdemeanor battery charge in connection with the Aria altercation and is to be arraigned in Las Vegas Justice Court on July 27.

TMZ posted a video of Cage tussling with Neil after the actor reportedly tried to intervene during the incident.
