Motley Crue singer Vince Neil will face the music for his Sin City drunk driving arrest last summer, reportedly accepting a plea deal that nets him two weeks in the slammer followed by as much time under house arrest.

An aide to Clark County District Attorney David Roger told The Associated Press Neil has agreed to plead guilty on Jan. 26 to driving under the influence.

"I have recognized that you can't drink and drive at all,'' Neil said in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Tuesday. "I take full responsibility for my actions and will learn from this experience."

The rocker and “Skating with the Stars” alum was busted June 27 for allegedly driving his Lamborghini 60 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone near the Las Vegas strip.

Cops said at the time Neil failed three tests to determine if he was drunk and a breath test showed his blood alcohol content at nearly three times the legal limit.

Two days after the arrest, Neil admitted he “shouldn’t have been driving.”

“I should have gotten a limo from the Hilton,” he said then, Fox5Vegas reported.

The 49-year-old “Girls, Girls, Girls” singer will reportedly begin serving time behind bars Feb. 15.

Back in the ‘80s, Neil pleaded guilty to drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter for being behind the wheel in a crash that resulted in the death of Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley and that seriously injured two others.

He went on to serve 15 days of a 30-day jail sentence, paid $2.5 million to his victims and performed 200 hours of community service, according to E!
