Two Men Arrested by Police for Saying 'Nickelback' in Public
If you happen to be in Idaho these days, it might be best not to talk about Nickelback, as a two men were recently "handcuffed, detained and interrogated" for mentioning Canadian rockers.

About five minutes of the whole situation was captured on video, showing Kootenai County Sheriff's Office deputies accusing the young men of saying "nickel sack," a reference to a bag of marijuana.

Ultimately, an officer pulled a gun on one of the guys for "getting that attitude and being an a-shole," leading to the mentioned arrest.

Mere moments before the police arrival, a truck was leaving the gas station with Nickelback cranked up in the driver's cabin. "No, Nickelback. That guy was blaring Nickelback," the man holding a cell phone camera defended. "There was no nickel sack involved."

"He's talking about drugs. He's not talking about Nickelback," the deputy insisted. "We're not born yesterday. That's a bullsh-t story. He said nickel sack."

In the end, both guys were released with no charges. Check out the clip below for more.
