Nickelback Singer to Cops

Blow Me!

4/2/2008 12:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad KroegerDon't ask Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger to blow in your face -- especially if you think he's been drinking!

According to Kroeger's lawyer, when Canadian cops stopped the singer in June of 2006 for speeding in his red Lamborghini Diablo, a cop asked him to blow in his face to see whether or not he had alcohol on his breath.

The lawyer also argued that cops waited too long before taking a breath sample, which the cops blame on Kroeger. They say he was pissed about having to leave his $175,000 ride on the side of the road.

Chad was convicted. He'll be sentenced May 1.

Chad kroeger is an amazing singer, and even though he gets done by the police, everyone still loves him. Afterall he is just normal, like anyone of us.

If you can afford to drive a Lamborghini, then you can certainly afford a CAB when you have to much to drink!

Seriously, who is he??? He obviously thinks he's important enough to drive a car like that and break the law while doing it. Now he's claiming victim. Someone needs to knock this guy down a few pegs.....

i hate hollywood    

this guy is a total bag of douche. His hair is an effing joke, he's uglier then sin, his music is complete CRAP and he can barely sing. This guy was a looser when he was a teen and tried to make up for it by being a "ROCKSTAR". Dude, your canadian, nothing cool comes from canada, cept snow. I wish he crashed that Lambo and severed his head. One less out of control waste of space fake rockstar out on the road to hurt good people.

All you haters must love Goth...Give the guy a break...I'm his ex and get sick of hearing all the haters out there....His music is a million times better than rap and goth....20 million people buying all their albums can't be wrong.

These celebrities are hoping that when cops pull them over, they will be star struck and let them go. SO GLAD to see cops not impressed and taking these A**holes off the street!

NICKELBACK ROCKS !!! Good feel good music. That being said, he really should set a better example for those who do look up to him just because he is a "star" and agree'ing with many of the posters here : hire a driver, call a limo service or a cab man. Or call me, I'll come give ya a ride /wink
