Chad Kroeger's license is revoked

Nickelback singer sentenced for drunk driving
Nickelback's lead singer Chad Kroeger was sentenced in Vancouver today (May 1) to a one-year driving ban and fined approximately $600 for drunken driving.

The 33-year-old singer was stopped by police in 2006 while driving a Lamborghini at 160km per hour in Surrey, Canada and was found to have a blood alcohol content of nearly double the legal limit.

Kroeger told reporters as he left the courthouse today that he does not condone drinking and driving, but "everyone makes mistakes," reports Reuters.

His lawyer said they intend to appeal the conviction, arguing that police violated Kroeger's rights when they made him take the breath test.
