The woman who Vince Neil grabbed by the hair and threw to the ground in Las Vegas earlier this year is suing the singer for $75,000 in damages.
According to reports, Neil, Nicholas Cage and comedian Carrot Top were leaving the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on April 7 when Kelly Guerrero and her 14-year-old son approached Cage, who was the boy’s favorite actor.
Cage had just had Neil in a headlock and, as the pair approached, began walking away. According to the suit, without provocation, Neil grabbed Guerrero by the hair on the back of her head and pulled her to the pavement on her back. When he realized what was going on, Cage once again put Neil in a headlock and told him to “stop this s**t now.”
New information on the incident has come out of the lawsuit, including the fact that, after pulling Guerrero to the ground and Cage separating them, Vince attacked another woman who ran from the hotel. The suit also states that Neil was “severely intoxicated and/or under the influence of powerful drug(s)”.
The suit also states that, the next morning, Guerrero woke very sore and went to the Desert Springs Emergency Room where she was diagnosed with “back sprain or strain; neck sprain or strain and sacral contusion due to physical assault.” She was also later found to have a “fractured coccyx [tail bone] and severed left hip injury”.
Guerrero is seeking $75,000 for “substantial medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.”
Neil is scheduled in court on July 27.
