Vince Neil -- Escaped DUI Conviction in 2007

6/28/2010 6:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Last night wasn't the first time Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil was arrested on suspicion of  DUI in Las Vegas -- dude was popped in Sin City back in 2007 ... but you'll never find it on his record.

Las Vegas law enforcement sources confirm Neil was arrested in January 2007 -- after cops noticed Neil performing some erratic maneuvers in his Ferrari.

After Vince smiled for his mug shot (above), Neil managed to work out a deal with prosecutors -- in which he pled no contest to reckless driving in exchange for having the DUI charge dropped.

Now, in the wake of last night's DUI -- the 2007 deal could save Neil from some serious time behind bars ... because according to Nevada state law, people who are convicted of DUI twice in seven years must serve anywhere from 10 days to six months in jail.

He coulda shoulda gotten a cab or limo, that is obvious. I am sure he is thinking the same. He will have to face the consequences and deal with them. I am a fan, but the law is the law. He is also old enough to know better.

He looks like a "happy drinker." A man that doesn't care that he killed someone in an earlier incident, because of his drinking and driving. Invisible Vince will burn in hell.

The real story is that this guy has ALREADY killed a buddy of his while driving under the influence about 20 years ago. Why don't you jump on that story?

WHY is TMZ ignoring the fact that Vince Neil was convicted of manslaughter in the 1984 death of a Hanoi Rocks band member and only did what, 20 days in jail? TMZ REPORT this. If he would have not been a celebrity, he would have done serious time.

He killed Razzle, and as far as I know thats the only person he killed. TMZ really should tell that story. Vince served almost no time at all for that.
