On Thursday, legendary hair metal singer Vince Neil and internet-beloved actor Nicolas Cage got into a physical altercation outside of a Las Vegas casino, after the former allegedly assaulted a woman.
According to TMZ, the fight occurred at the Aria Hotel on the Vegas strip. Both Neil and Cage were inside when a fan approached the rock icon and asked for an autograph. Vince then allegedly got behind the woman, grabbed her by the hair and pulled her to the ground.
The video captured shows the aftermath of the situation, where Cage restrains Neil and attempts to calm him down, ultimately telling the rocker to “stop this sh*t now.”
Considering that Neil is about to embark on a tour with his own solo band later this month, this is definitely not a good look for the 55-year-old. Ultimately, Vince was cited for battery, but never taken to the police station.
Some have questioned the authenticity of what happens on the video, citing that it may have been staged, but seeing as how the police were involved, this incident may be more truth than fiction. The jury is still out on this one, but for the woman in the clip’s sake, let’s all hope that it’s not for real.
