Dennis Hof, owner of the famed Moonlite Bunny Ranch where MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil allegedly assaulted a prostitute on July 10, believes "Vince is only guilty of being a celebrity."
According to a battery complaint filed on July 17, Neil, 42, attacked Andrea Terry (a.k.a. Trixxxie Blue) "by grabbing her around the throat and throwing her against a wall."
But Hof told the New York Daily News that, on the night in question, Neil and his band stopped by the legal brothel simply to sign autographs for ranch employees who didn't make it to his concert in Reno the day before.
According to Hof, Terry and Neil got into an argument in her room because he didn't want to have sex with her.
"No celebrity pays for sex here," Hof said. "This girl said he'd promised her $3,000. I was the first person called to the room, and I saw nothing in disarray. At that time, I saw no marks or scratches on her."
"If he laid a hand on her, I would have been up his ass," added Hof. "I don't condone any aggression toward women."
