Vince Neil avoided potentially spending six months in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence in a Las Vegas courtroom. The Mötley Crüe frontman had been caught driving drunk last summer in the vicinity of the Las Vegas strip. He was sentenced to 15 days in the Clark County jail and 15 days under house arrest.

Neil has faced accusations of preferential treatment in the case thanks to the seemingly lenient sentence. Clark County District Attorney David Roger disagreed, saying, “He pled guilty to DUI. The vast majority of people facing a first offense DUI in Nevada don’t face jail time.”

Neil was stopped by police in his black Lamborghini sports car after he was seen leaving the Las Vegas Hilton on June 27. This isn’t Neil’s first brush with the law on the charge of drunk driving. In 1984, the singer was involved in a car crash in Redondo Beach, Calif. that killed his passenger, Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas Dingley.

Neil was convicted of manslaughter and drunken driving. He served 20 days in jail and paid $2.5 million in compensation.
