Fake Diamond Dave Turns Out to be a Real Kuntz

7/15/2008 7:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops say they've id'd the man who pulled the rhinestone wool over their eyes claiming to be David Lee Roth.
David Lee Roth
According to the Toronto Star, Ontario Provincial Popo are fingering David Kuntz as the cashew-allergic nut that has been duping people across Canada.

In May, the fake Dave fooled Ontario cops that pulled him over for speeding -- and told them he was suffering an allergic reaction to nuts. The cops then went on the local news talking about how they helped save Diamond Dave's life.

Holy Moly!! I Was in Rehab with this guy about four or five years ago...back then, he was David Angel, former member, for just one tour, mind you, of Motley Crue. He claimed to have been on guitar for the '92 tour...he also said that he was the writer of U2's "With or Without You", "Every Rose Has It's Thorns" and, here's the topper--"November Rain" While saying he actually wrote these songs, he said he was the "Ghost Writer", so never got credit...Hmmm, it all just makes me wonder. Adding to that controversy, he had been involved with a really nice girl, who, subsequently went to prison for the rest of her life for cocaine smuggling. He was a lot of fun to be with, but somehow I always did wonder about the stories he would tell, like hanging out with Will Smith when Will was in Vancouver filming I Robot (I think that's what David's claim was) and loads and loads of other stories. Good luck to ya! By the way--you still owe me $20.00!

This guy didn't dupe people ACROSS Canada!! LOL!! He just had an allergic reaction to nuts and was pulled over by the cops. After getting treatment in Brantford Ontario, he just did this charade for a couple of days in the Brantford area, then disappeared, most likely to his home town of Cambridge Ontario.
I know this because I live 15 minutes from Brantford.
Don't give this dishonest guy any more credit than he deserves!
