The sentencing phase of Chad Kroeger’s case of driving under the influence has resulted in the Nickelback singer losing his driver’s license for one year and being fined $590.
Kroeger was stopped for speeding in his Lamborghini in June 2006 in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia. After detecting alcohol, the officers adminstered a breath test. Kroger’s blood alcohol level registered .14% and he was charged with drunk driving.
Kroeger’s DUI defense attorney had unsuccessfully tried to get the test results thrown out. The singer was not in court last month and a judge declared him guilty of driving while intoxicated.
Kroeger, whose birth name is Chad Robert Turton, plans to appeal the sentence.
