David Lee Roth

Puts Nuts in Mouth

Almost Dies

7/8/2008 7:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Van Halen won't have to call Sammy Hagar back quite yet!

Diamond David Lee Roth was reportedly pulled over for speeding in Ontario, Canada last month when officers noticed the rocker was having a medical emergency -- Roth was suffering from a severe allergic reaction to nuts.

An ambulance was called and Roth, a paramedic himself, was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released. The officers are being credited with saving Roth's life.

Calls to Roth's reps have not been returned.

Party 'till you die!    

I feel his pain, nut allergies suck! PB smells like concentrated death to some of us! Being on airplanes blows when they serve peanuts on planes, but I just have found it's better to keep my mouth shut and suffer through it quietly. I'm just glad it's my only allergy. Strictly 'female' foods for me-if it has nuts on it or in it, no thanks (and that works for everything and scraping them off/removing them, like in life, changes nuttin' ...er nothing!).

Uh, DLR is NOT a Paramedic. He's an EMT. There is a HUGE difference between being an EMT and a Paramedic.

David Lee Roth is a paramedic, too? Did I read that right? The Van Halen/Sammy Hagar years must've been pretty tough times!

NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT NUT ALLERGIES, MY SON HAS ALOMST DIED FROM EXPOSURE TO PEANUTS.
PEANUT OIL, WHICH CAN BE A HIDDEN INGREDIENT IN MANY, MANY FOODS CAN BE DEADLY.

I used to know a few ex-girlfriends who had nut allergies. That's why they are now ex's.
