LAS VEGAS (CBS/AP) Las Vegas police have confirmed that they are investigating a complaint filed against Motley Crue singer Vince Neil, which claims that he grabbed an unidentified woman by the arm in an elevator at the Las Vegas Hilton Sunday night.

Officer Barbara Morgan said Thursday that police took statements Sunday from the unidentified woman and two other people regarding a misdemeanor battery complaint against the 49-year-old rock singer.

Although LVPD are not identifying the woman, she doesn't seem to have any qualms about outing herself: she released a video statement, identifying herself as Jessica Radovicz, according to gossip site WENN.

In the video, posted on WENN, Radovicz claims that she was in the hotel elevator on her way to her room when Neil and a couple of young woman got in. She says she recognized Neil and asked him if he was on TV.

That's when she says he lost it. Radovicz claims that Neil "yelled at [her], grabbed [her] by the arms and threw [her] against the wall."

Neil has not been arrested, and his lawyer David Chesnoff was unavailable for immediate comment. Neil reportedly owns a cantina in the hotel.

There's no indication Neil knew the woman, who didn't report being physically injured to the police.
