Surrey, British Columbia. Chad Kroeger, aka Chad Turton, is the frontman for the band Nickelback. Kroeger was arrested for DUI in June 2006 when police witnessed Kroeger speeding through Surrey in his Lamborghini. During the investigation it was determined that Kroeger’s blood alcohol content was double the legal limit.
Kroeger took the case to trial, but did not have much interest in the outcome. Instead of attending his DUI trial he was in Europe recording or producing music. He might have made the right decision not to attend if he did not want to hear the word, “Guilty.” Kroeger was convicted of the DUI, and is expected to attend his sentencing hearing schedule for May 1st.
