Asshole. Fucking drunk asshole. Fifteen days is a cake walk, yet the Mötley Crüe frontman thinks his sentence for driving under the influence — stemming from a 2010 arrest in Las Vegas — was “harsh.”

“They were a little harsh in the sentencing,” says the man who has been arrested before for DUI, and killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle Dingley many years ago in a drinking and driving accident. “But they wanted to make an example out of me, and it is what it is. It’s not bad, but it’s still jail. Jail is jail.”

They’re making an example out of him. Sure. “I think just because of my past. That kind of factored into it. But I’m going to do it, do my time and put it behind me and move on with my life.”

Dude, past convictions and behavior are always factored into a sentence. You killed someone in an accident, and did not learn your lesson the first time. So, you’re going to go to jail for a stretch. And fifteen days is nothing. What happened that night?

“Obviously, it was something that happened, and it should not have happened. There are so many other options that you can take instead of saying, ‘Yeah, I can drive home.’ But I did it.”
