Vince Neil has pleaded guilty to drink-driving.

The Motley Crue singer took a plea deal that calls for 15 days of jail time, plus 15 days of house arrest for driving under the influence last summer near the Las Vegas Strip.

He is expected to begin serving his sentence on February 15, one week after his 50th birthday.

The rocker could have faced up to six months in jail if he was convicted at trial.

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

He appeared 90 minutes early before a judge who agreed to the schedule change. The star's lawyer, David Chesnoff, says the case was moved because he had a scheduling conflict with another client.
