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.

This story seriously needs to be updated. It wasn't David Lee Roth. It was a scammer called David ****z. He fooled alot of gullible people in Brantford (Wayne Gretzky's hometown) and Oakland (a small town near Brantford). After his trip to the emergency room, he then went to a neighbourhood bar and kept his charade with some of the nurses that treated him. He got up and stage and sang Ice Cream Man, fooling even more people. He resembles a very old David Lee Roth that hasn't aged well at all. When someone finally got around to checking the facts, it was discovered that the night the scammer was pulled over, the real David Lee was playing at Madison Square Gardens. When asked if he was allergic to nuts, David Lee was quoted as saying "being alergic to criticism." This story needs to be updated. As Harvey says "its funny." And yes, I'm from Brantford and remember the incident very well. Van Halen is one of my favourite bands but only with David Lee. No Sammy Hagar. Sammy should just stay with Chickenfoot. Love TMZ also.

Just in case you don't know, Ontario is a province (like a state)not a city. It would be like saying Michigan USA.
