Canadian police threaten Nick­el­back on drunk driv­ers

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF - Pho­tos and text from wire ser­vices

KENS­ING­TON, PRINCE ED­WARD IS­LAND >> A police depart­ment in Canada’s prov­ince of Prince Ed­ward Is­land is threat­en­ing to im­pose “the Nick­el­back treat­ment” on any­one who drinks and drives.

The Kens­ing­ton Police Ser­vice shared a so­cial me­dia post over the week­end promis­ing to force any drunk driv­ers it ar­rests to lis­ten to the Canadian band while in the back seat of a cruiser.

The band has been a huge com­mer­cial suc­cess, with mul­ti­ple awards in Canada, but is also glee­fully ma­ligned by some de­trac­tors.

Con­sta­ble Robb Hartlen says on Face­book that if you are fool­ish enough to get be­hind a wheel while drink­ing, then a lit­tle Chad Kroeger and the boys is a per­fect gift. The of­fi­cer posed along­side a photo of the band’s break­through al­bum, “Sil­ver Side Up.”

Nick­el­back lead vo­cal­ist Chad Kroeger and his band per­form in 2011.
