Chad Kroeger Convicted of Drunk Driving

Posted on April 2, 2008 by

Chad Kroeger, lead singer of Nickleback, was found guilty of drunk driving in British Columbia yesterday, cbc.ca reports.

The charges stem from an event in June 2006, where Kroeger was found driving with a blood alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit.

His lawyer tried to get the breathalyzer test Kroeger took ruled as inadmissible because it violated Kroeger’s rights, but the judge overruled.

“The judge found that his Charter of Rights were breached. However, he declined to exclude the breathalyzer results,” his lawyer said.

Sentencing will occur on May 1, Kroeger could face a fine or a driving ban. His lawyer says he plans to appeal the conviction.
