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.

just because he pled down the 2007 incident to reckless driving doesn't mean you don't get to ignore the arrest for DUI. California has/had a similar deal. You got to plea down your 1st DUI to a reckless driving with alcohol involved, but you still could not get another DUI arrest within 7 years. if you got popped again, you got the mandatory time as a second offense. please do some research before you write these articles.

How many times does this ******* need to get a DUI before he kills someone else? Does anyone remember when he killed his friend Razzle from Hanoi Rocks in the 80's from a drunk driving accident? He needs his license taken away permanently and jail time. It's just a matter of time before he kills again.
