Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx received a suspended jail sentence and 18 months of supervised probation after pleading no contest to three misdemeanors in Greensboro, N.C., on Thursday. Sixx made the plea for kicking a security guard John Allen in the head and urging fans to attack him during a 1997 concert. Last week, co-defendant and former band drummer Tommy Lee entered a no contest plea for assault and also received supervised probation after being charged in the same incident.
