Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger was sentenced Thursday to a year without driving and fined $588 for a drunken driving conviction.

Kroeger, whose real name is Chad Turton, was stopped for speeding in his red Lamborghini in suburban Surrey, British Columbia, in June 2006.

Authorities said his blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.

His lawyer, Marvin Stern, noted the 33-year-old singer’s charitable works and said the charges and trial have been an intrusion into Kroeger’s life.
