Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil is reportedly being charged with misdemeanor battery after an incident with a fan at the Aria hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

The incident happened in April of this year.

Neil and actor Nicolas Cage were at the hotel-casino when a woman attempted to get an autograph from Cage and Neil pulled her to the ground by her hair.

After that, Cage and Neil ended up getting into a scuffle outside the property when Cage attempted to force Neil to leave.
