Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil's trial has been postponed in a misdemeanor case alleging he grabbed a woman and pulled her to the ground in April outside a Las Vegas Strip resort.

The 55-year-old rocker didn't appear in court Monday. His lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, told a judge that a key defense witness wasn't available this week.

The judge reset trial for Oct. 20.

Schonfeld wouldn't say outside court whether the witness is actor Nicolas Cage.

Cage was seen in bystander video physically restraining Neil last April 7 outside the Aria casino-hotel.
