(Classic Rock) Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil is one of several people reportedly being sued over their involvement in setting up the failed Las Vegas Outlaws Arena Football League (AFL) franchise.

According to Courthouse News, investor Sohrob Farudi is suing RockStar Sports Group - of which Neil was president and CEO - for defrauding him of $500,000 when he invested in the now defunct team.
