LAS VEGAS (AP) - Motley Crue singer Vince Neil took a plea deal that calls for two weeks of jail time, plus two weeks of house arrest for driving drunk last summer near the Las Vegas Strip.

Neil is pleaded guilty Wednesday morning before a Las Vegas justice of the peace to misdemeanor driving under the influence. He’s expected to begin serving his sentence Feb. 15, a week after his 50th birthday.

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

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

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