Motley Crue's Vince Neil Throws a Punch at Rowdy Fan

Eleven Seven MusicMotley Crue singer Vince Neil took a swing at a fan in the front row of his solo show in New Mexico over the weekend after the fan reportedly kept grabbing at him while he was trying to perform, reports TMZ.com

Neil had just started performing "Kickstart My Heart" when he stopped the song and screamed at the guy to "get the f*** outta here!"  The guy started yelling back at Neil, and the singer threw a punch at him, but missed when the guy ducked.  Security guards quickly rushed in and removed the man from the show.  Neil continued his performance as if nothing had happened.

However, a rep for Inn of the Mountain Gods casino in New Mexico, where the concert took place, tells TMZ that the man later returned seeking revenge.  He said, "During the post-performance party at the property, the intoxicated fan and his group of friends, who were also visibly inebriated, returned and continually attempted to get close to Vince."  The rep says the group tried to enter a private section where Vince was seated with his band, but they were intercepted by security and removed from the casino.
