The 49-year-old rocker, who lives in Sin City where he has several tattoo parlors and restaurants, was booked at the Clark County Detention Center, according to People magazine. Police pulled Neil over after a woman complained that he broke her camera after she took his picture, the magazine reported.
When they located him, he was in his car and intoxicated, police said. In 1984, Neil pleaded guilty to DUI and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Hanoi Rocks drummer and pal Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley. That case has haunted Neil for two-and-a-half decades.
"I wrote a $2.5 million check for vehicular manslaughter when Razzle died," Neil told Blender magazine in 2005. "I should have gone to prison. I definitely deserved to go to prison. But I did 30 days in jail and got laid and drank beer, because that's the power of cash.
