Motley Crue singer 'grabbed woman'
Police are investigating a complaint by a woman who claimed Motley Crue singer Vince Neil grabbed her arms in a lift at the Las Vegas Hilton - but a hotel executive has said surveillance video showed the allegation was not true.
Vince, 49, wasn't arrested after police took statements on Sunday from the woman and two other people regarding the battery complaint, Las Vegas police officer Barbara Morgan said.The police investigation remained open.
However, Hilton vice president Kenneth Ciancimino issued a statement saying video footage from the lift indicated the claim against Vince was completely unfounded.
"We consider the matter closed," he said.
Vince's lawyer David Chesnoff was unavailable for immediate comment.
A woman identified as Jessica Radovicz reiterated her claim in a video posted on the celebrity website TMZ.com. In it, she pointed to faint bruises she said she received on her upper arms.
There was no indication Vince knew the woman, and she didn't report to police that she was physically injured, Morgan said.
The rocker owns tattoo shops and bars in Las Vegas, including a cantina at the Hilton.
