Nickelback Singer Sentenced for DUI

Chad Kroeger DUI

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.
