Rocker Vince Neil can put his most recent DUI charge firmly behind him after completing court-ordered counselling sessions as part of his sentence.
The Motley Crue star spent his 54th birthday behind bars in February as he served 10 days of a 15-day jail term in Nevada, stemming from his 2010 arrest for drink driving.

He endured a further 15 days under house arrest, paid a fine and was told to enrol in alcohol awareness lessons.

However, the case was declared closed on Tuesday when a Las Vegas judge signed off on the completion of the counselling course.

Neil also made a $500 donation to the campaign group Mothers Against Drunk Driving, according to court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price.

But the singer’s legal woes don’t end there – he is due to be arraigned in a Las Vegas court on Monday on separate charges of misdemeanour battery and disorderly conduct relating to an incident in March. The charges followed an altercation with his TV reporter ex-girlfriend Alicia Jacobs, and could land him back behind bars if the judge rules it was a violation of his probation.
