Ex-Korn Drummer David Silveria

I Drove While Tired ... Not Drunk

Former Korn drummer David Silveria tells TMZ ... he blew a 0.0 on the breathalyzer during his DUI arrest this week ... but says cops nailed him anyway over a sleeping pill he took the night before.

TMZ broke the story ... Silveria was popped in Huntington Beach, CA on Sunday at 10:45 AM.

Silveria is adamant he hadn't been boozing ... telling us he suffers from insomnia and took a sleeping pill Saturday night to help him rest. When he woke up Sunday morning, David says he didn't realize he was still too tired to drive ... and accidentally rear-ended another car on the way to breakfast.

Cops arrived to the scene and put David through a standard DUI test ... but Silveria tells us they didn't detect a drop of alcohol in his system.

Silveria says he told the cops about the sleeping pill ... and that's when they made the decision to arrest him for DUI.

Silveria -- who is now a member of the band INFINIKA -- says he plans to take responsibility for his actions ... telling us, "It was an honest mistake."

Why do all these men now have lady brows? Surely someone can make them a bit more masculine, can't they?

DRIVING TIRED IS THE SAME AS DRIVING DRUNK MEDICALLY SPEAKING SO THE PO-PO WAS RIGHT ARRESTING HIM FOR DUI. #TRUTH

Well driving while impaired is still the charge. I hope he doesn't get off with just a slap on the wrist because he deserves more.

@ FsharpMinor, actually good advice as we move closer and closer to a policed state. ( anything you say WILL be held against you )

No intelligent judge is going to find him guilty of DUI. If we all got a DUI for being tired while driving, our state coffers could pay off the national debt. The charge should be reduced to failure to avoid an accident.

Are you sure he was on his way to breakfast and not to the brow salon for another waxing? I'm all for neatly trimmed brows, but this is touching on Linda Evangelista territory!

He has such a masculine face; what misguided person convinced him to have his eyebrows waxed so severely? And I see from the earlier comments I'm not the only one to notice. Octomom is the one who needs eyebrow attention...she looks like a Romanian peasant! And doesn't need to.
