Florida Man Arrested for Pretending to Be Nickelback’s Drummer

I mean, that’s a pretty solid grift.

No one would ever suspect anyone of pretending to be in any way affiliated with Nickelback.

According to The Wrap, police in Port St. Lucie Florida arrested 45-year-old Lee Howard Koenig for tryna use Nickelback drummer Daniel Adair’s identity to purchase about $25K in music gear, including drum parts, from a company in Vienna, Austria. Detective Paul Griffith said of the alleged fraud:

“[Koenig allegedly] identified himself as Daniel Adair with Nickelback and said that he was looking for some microphones and tried to place an order via an email,” Griffith continued. “He says he’s Daniel Adair from Nickelback.”

According to the affidavit, Adair said he never placed any such order. Koenig, on the other hand, has a record of pulling s**t like this. Dude was sentenced to three years in prison in 2009 for fraudulently collecting $78,000.

Florida is at it again with the crazy s**t.

If a man can “identify as a woman” and everyone else has to pretend it is so then a man identifying as Nickleback’s drummer should be acceptable.
