LAS VEGAS (AP) — Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil’s trial has been postponed in a misdemeanor case alleging he grabbed a woman and pulled her to the ground in April outside a Las Vegas Strip resort.
The 55-year-old rocker didn’t appear in court Monday. His lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, told a judge that a key defense witness wasn’t available this week.
The judge reset trial for Oct. 20.
Schonfeld wouldn’t say outside court whether the witness is actor Nicolas Cage.
