(CNN) -- Former Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil entered a guilty plea on a drunk driving charge in Las Vegas Wednesday, a court spokeswoman said.

Neil must start serving a 15-day jail sentence on February 15, Clark County, Nevada, court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price said.

When he gets out of jail, the heavy metal rocker will also serve 15 days under house arrest, attend a drunk driving school and take part in an online victim impact discussion, Price said. The judge also imposed a $185 fine, she said.

Las Vegas police arrested Neil, 49, on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol last June.

Neil was a contestant in the last season of TV's "Skating with the Stars."
