The Toronto Sun reports David Lee Roth was suffering an allergic reaction to nuts and thankfully was pulled over by Oakland, Ontario police for speeding, getting paramedic assistance for the Van Halen frontman. “We didn’t run anything on it because it’s something we come across everyday,” Const. Larry Plummer of the Brant OPP said in regards to the officers not knowing who Roth was. “We try to protect people’s privacy when it involves personal information.”
Const. Chris Thompson, one of the officers who helped the 53-year-old rocker, admitted he thought there was something different about Diamond Dave. “At the time, I wasn’t star struck,” Thompson said. “I was just trying to help him.
