Nickleback singer banned from driving

Chad Kroeger plans to appal drink drive conviction

Nickleback frontman Chad Kroeger has been banned from driving for a year.

The singer was convicted of drink-driving in Vancouver, and was also fined C$600 (£298), reports BBC News.

Kroeger was stopped speeding in his Lamborghini in June 2006, and was found to have twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

After hearing the verdict, Kroeger told reporters that “everyone makes mistakes”, while his lawyers confirmed he will appeal the decision.

The singer’s legal team claim police infringed his rights in the manner they conducted his breath test.
