Vince Neil Charged with Brutalizing Autograph Hound

EXCLUSIVE

Vince Neil has been charged with attacking a woman in Vegas ... an incident which triggered a nuclear argument between Vince and Nic Cage.

Vince allegedly went off on an autograph seeker, grabbing her by the hair and pulling her to the ground. Vince claims the woman got all aggro on him and all he did was push past her. Our law enforcement sources say they have surveillance video showing he manhandled her.

After the altercation, Neil and Nic -- with whom he had just had lunch -- walked out of Aria hotel, where Nic and Neil got into it with each other.

Neil's been charged with misdemeanor battery. Worst case scenario ... 6 months in jail.
