A judge has delayed Motley Crue star Vince Neil’s trial on misdemeanour charges – on the day it was due to begin.
Neil’s lawyers requested an emergency postponement on Monday when the rocker was due to face charges stemming from a March altercation with an ex-girlfriend in Las Vegas.

A judge granted the continuance and rescheduled the trial for 7 November, according to the Associated Press.

The singer has pleaded not guilty to charges of misdemeanour battery and disorderly conduct.
