Rock News: Nikki Sixx saved by the Constitution.
In America even the motley-ist of all crues have rights. Nikki Sixx has been saved by his right to free speech. 

What are we talking about? Mr. Sixx of Motley Crue was arrested last August in Las Vegas for attempting to incite a riot during the bands concert at the Mandalay Bay Concert theatre.  The story goes a lot deeper, and here is what we know.  Before the August concert, members of the Crue were warned by the Las Vegas  Police Department to “Behave or Else”.  Back in 1997 Las Vegas PD was called to the scene when some violence broke out in the crowd during a Crue concert at the Aladdin Theatre. Four fans were injured during the 1997 concert, as a result the Las Vegas Police Department wanted to make sure that this years show would not be a repeat performance of the Alladin show. 

Nikki Sixx apparently upset by the warning got the crowd in a rowdy mood as he blasted the Vegas cops from stage, “Every time we come to town, the cops tell us we can't be Mötley Crüe. If they don't like it, we can start flipping over cop cars like we did a couple of years ago." 

The Cops, living up to their warning , arrested Sixx and charged him with “provoking a breach of the peace”, a misdemeanor. He only had to spend a few hours in the Las Vegas jail before being released on $200 bail. 

Earlier this week a Las Vegas district attorney dropped the charges against Sixx. According to the D.A. Nikki may have upset some of Las Vegas’ finest, but his actions were well within the bounds of “free speech”. 

Will a jury in North Carolina agree? Sixx and Tommy Lee both are scheduled to appear in civil court for allegedly assaulting a security guard at a Crue concert in Raleigh, North Carolina back in 1997.
