You Wouldn't Want To Meet Motley Crue's Vince Neil In Real Life. Here's Why

If we're honest with ourselves, we can probably all admit that there is no objective standard to which all human behavior can be held. There are over seven billion of us now, each living a life distinct from all other lives. It is hard enough to walk a mile in your neighbor's shoes. Trying to do the same across the entire spectrum of mankind would leave a person confused, overwhelmed, and probably suffering from athlete's foot.

Even so, let's all agree right here and now that, if nothing else, a man must be expected to be on his best behavior when in the presence the cast of National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets. If that one rule cannot be followed, can we truly be said to be civilized at all?

And so it is with a heavy heart and a solemn tone that we deliver the following news: in 2016, Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil grabbed a lady by the hair when she asked for an autograph and pulled her to the ground. And, most shamefully of all, he did it in front of Nicolas Cage.

Also, in 1984, he crashed a car and killed a guy while his BAC was nearly twice the legal limit.

That's just Rüde

On December 8th,1984, Vince Neil was partying with Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley, the drummer for Hanoi Rocks. According to the LA Times, Neil was driving his sports car with Dingley in the passenger seat when he ran directly into an oncoming Volkswagen. Dingley was killed in the collision, and the occupants of the other car were hospitalized. One remained in a coma for over a month. Neil's blood alcohol level at the time of the crash was measured at .17, significantly higher than California's .10 legal limit at the time. Charged with vehicular manslaughter, Neil would later describe his comeuppance in an interview with Blender: "I wrote a $2.5 million cheque for vehicular manslaughter when Razzle died. I should have gone to prison. I definitely deserved to go to prison. But I did 30 days in jail and got laid and drank beer, because that's the power of cash."

Since then, Neil has had numerous run-ins with the law. In 2002, MTV reported that an arrest warrant was issued after he punched a record producer. The next year, he pleaded no contest after he was charged for battery when he reportedly threw a prostitute against a wall. Honestly, the list goes on.

But then, in 2016, Neil allegedly yanked a fan to the ground by her hair in Las Vegas. As reported by TMZ, he had to be restrained by Nicolas Cage. When the only things standing between you and your worst impulses is Ghost Rider, you know you've made some wrong turns.
