Vince Neil -- Rehab May Have Spared Him

7/4/2010 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Now we know why Vince Neil's wife said her hubby had been sober for three years before getting busted for DUI last month -- turns out went to rehab after an earlier arrest ... to dodge a DUI bullet.  

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Vince -- who was arrested back in 2007 in Las Vegas after cops saw him driving his Ferrari erratically -- went to an inpatient drug program as part of his plea deal in the case.

The rehab stink may have saved Vince, because the DUI was knocked down to reckless driving. With a fresh DUI under his belt, the last thing Vince needed was a prior. 

FYI, the type of reckless driving charge to which Vince pleaded does not count against him in his current DUI case.

I don't get why these people drive their cars to the bars where they are going to be drinking. You have a much less chance of hurting someone if you just take your bike. Get a nice hard to control chopper. Get Jessie to make it.

Anyone see signs of him falling off the wagon before this? Or was is a "known" secret?? Love his music, but not his actions. He needs to remember what his life was like before "The Remaking of Vince Neil" and performing at strip malls.

wrong again, TMZ. Just because you plead down to reckless driving does not negate the arrest on suspicion of DUI. It still counts as a prior.
