Vince Neil -- Allegedly Smashed Before DUI

TMZ has learned Las Vegas PD had been hunting for Vince Neil before his DUI last night -- because he was a suspect in a camera-smashing incident earlier in the evening.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ -- around 11:53 PM, a woman told police Neil had grabbed her camera and smashed it after she took his picture sometime last night.

We're told cops went looking for Neil to question him about the incident -- and a short time later, officers spotted Neil's car and pulled him over ... where he was subsequently arrested on suspicion of DUI.

TMZ spoke to Neil's wife -- who tells us the rocker had been sober for three years. She's currently en route to Vegas to bail Vince out.

UPDATE 10:58 AM PT: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they received a call about an intoxicated driver. We're told cops found Neil driving near Las Vegas Blvd. and pulled him over. Officers detected alcohol and he was given a field sobriety test and was subsequently placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI. Neil posted bail within the hour.

Why are people who have everything, so bleeping stupid?? I hope for his family's sake, that he contacts Dr. Drew and gets the help he clearly needs. Celebrity Rehab has plenty of room, Vince, and your family, friends, and fans are rooting for you to get clean and sober, and stay that way. Peace.

@7, maybe that's why he was caught drinking. He wants to be on tv again. I heard Celebrity Rehab was having problems finding 'celebs' to be on the show.

So sad. He seems like a pretty cool dude. Loved him in Motley Crue and the Surreal Life. I hope he can get himself together. Maybe a stint on Celebrity Rehab. I'd watch that show if Vince was on it. Get well soon Vince!

Sober?? You have to be kidding me. The guy has his own Tequila company...you don't make tequila and not drink it. His wife is either in denial or a liar.

If cops were looking for him in relation to that smashed camera, then why book him for DUI? I assume they could smell he had been boozing.

Vince Neil is a legend, so lay the F*#$ off! OK! So he had a bad night , don't we all, or are some of us perfect! Motley Crue is still filling arena's so this notion that he is a washed up rock star is dillusional, no one today can hold a candle to the Vince and the Crue.
