LAS VEGAS, April 4 (UPI) -- The Palms hotel and casino in Las Vegas says it has banned Motley Crue front man Vince Neil because of his alleged "inappropriate behavior."

Neil last week complained via Twitter about his treatment by staff at the Palms restaurant Little Buddha March 28.

"I love Vegas, but DO NOT GO TO LITTLE BUDDHA @PALMS IN VEGAS," he said via Twitter. "OMG RUDEST STAFF EVER!! Don't go!!"

"Do [sic] to recent events, including distrust and dishonesty at the executive level. I will never again step foot @palms property," the rocker said in a follow-up tweet.

"Mr. Neil has recently made negative comments about Palms on Twitter, however, he fails to mention his own actions. As a result of Mr. Neil's inappropriate behavior, he was asked to leave a restaurant at Palms," the Las Vegas Sun reported Palms representatives said in a statement.

"Mr. Neil has also since called Palms personnel threatening negative publicity. While we believe this is unfortunate, and we would prefer that Mr. Neil put his efforts toward apologizing for his conduct, such threats will have no effect on Palms' policies or its decision in this matter," the statement said. "We at Palms take customer service very seriously, but we also take the well-being of our team members just as seriously. We cannot and will not allow our guests, no matter who they are, to mistreat our team members. As a result of his actions, Mr. Neil is no longer welcome at Palms."

This is not the first complaint made in the city about the rocker's behavior.

Neil, who owns the Vegas adult club Vince Neil's Girls, Girls, Girls, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct after getting into an altercation with a woman at Shimmer Cabaret more than a year ago, the Sun noted.
