Motley Crue star Vince Neil has paid a $1,000 fine to settle his legal troubles stemming from a physical altercation earlier this year.
The singer initially denied charges of misdemeanour battery and disorderly conduct for allegedly shouting obscenities at TV reporter Alicia Jacobs, a former girlfriend, and poking her with his finger at the Las Vegas Hilton in March.

Neil was expected to resolve the case by accepting a plea deal after waving his right to stand trial, and on Monday the star’s lawyer pleaded guilty to the latter charge on the rocker’s behalf.

The Justice of Peace dismissed the singer’s more serious charge of battery and then ordered Neil to pay the small sum, according to the Associated Press.
