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.

pretty amazing that he's gotten away with 2 DUI's, considering he killed the drummer from Hanoi Rocks back in the 80s in a drunk driving accident....WTF????

Hello, jail? If this guy wasn't a celebrity, he would be doing time. He needs to be locked up before he kills someone else.

This is 2007 picture people. Give him a break on the looks. After his 'televised' face lift, he looks great! At least he doesn't try to hide the fact he had one, and thankfully, he didn't get the trout mouth lip replacements!

Home Sweet Home should be playing in his head. On the remaking of Vince Neil he was a sloppy pitiful drunk at one point. I am a fan but really!!! I bet the rest of the band is angry and disappointed too. If you drink DO NOT DRIVE! Celebrity or not!!!

Where is everyone getting the info about two deaths? I have never heard he killed anyone other than Razzle. Although I can't imagine the 2 people in the other car have been living much of a life (does anyone have info on them?). Anyway, I'm pretty sure he only killed 1 person. No one else died in that wreck

It's just another story in the life of a celebrity. They buy there way out of anything, either that or they tend to get special treatment from the system depending on who they are. I't out of hand something needs to be done soon so that they can be held accountable just like any other person would be if they broke the laws.

Does anybody remember that he killed his best friend in a DUI accident 30 years ago? He totaled his car off the Sunset Strip. he never served jail time for it, instead was given community service to go and speak. It's talked about a lot in Motley Crue's The Dirt. Even though it was a really long time ago, and in another state they still can use it against his character when sentencing him if he is convicted.

I guess the Razzle Dingley killing didn't sink in far enough. People like this are better off driving off a cliff and hurting/killing no one but themselves.
