(hennemusic) Former Motley Crue singer Vince Neil is heading to court later this month after being charged with misdemeanor battery in an alleged incident in Las Vegas, NV on April 7.

Neil is accused of dragging an autograph seeker to the ground by her hair during a lunch with actor Nicolas Cage at the Aria Hotel, with TMZ reporting that the alleged altercation was caught on surveillance video from inside the hotel.

The rocker quickly denied any wrongdoing in the days following the first headlines, claiming the fan was "very aggressive" in her efforts to secure an autograph from Cage.

"[Mr. Neil] and Mr. Cage went to Aria. A female was attempting to talk to or get an autograph from Mr. Cage," Officer Michael Rodriguez of the Las Vegas Police Department tells Rolling Stone. "Mr. Neil subsequently pulled her down to the ground by the hair."

Neil and Cage made headlines following the alleged incident when they were involved in scuffle outside the venue after hotel security had held them for an hour and police had already ticketed him for battery.

Following a scheduled June 17 hearing, Neil will return to a Las Vegas courtroom on July 27 and could face a maximum sentence of six months in jail if convicted, according to local police. Watch the video footage here.
