Neil himself, however, became more infamous for his time outside of the band than within. The rest of the band members fired Neil from Mötley Crüe in 1992 due to Neils drinking habits. Neil was letting his drinking get ahead of him, causing him to not be in attendance for band-related activities like rehearsals. At the time the band felt that Neil was more interested in the band’s lifestyle rather than the music, and on those grounds, Neil parted ways with the group.
Legal issues have continuously plagued Neil, starting in 1984 where Neil was jailed for vehicular manslaughter of Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley for driving under the influence of alcohol. In 2002 they arrested Neil for assaulting record producer Michael Schuman. In 2003 they arrested Neil for assault of a sex worker from the Moonlight Bunny Ranch. In 2004 they charged Neil for assaulting a soundman. In 2007 and 2010, they charged Neil for another drink driving incident.

In 2016 Neil was in another assault altercation with a fan in Las Vegas where he had to be restrained by Nicolas Cage.
