Watch A Man Get Arrested For Talking About Nickelback

A pair of police officers handcuffed a 23-year-old man after they misheard "Nickelback" for "nickel sack"

Today in WTF: A 23-year-old man was handcuffed, detained and interrogated at gunpoint by police in Idaho for literally saying "Nickleback." You can't make this stuff up!

Dylan Swinford, the man in question, was leaving work with friend Riker Morrow when the pair were stopped by cops. The officers misheard "Nickleback" for "nickle sack" and thought the two were organizing a drug deal. Umm....

A friend of the gentlemen told CDA Press, "The one question I really want answered the most is, how are our young people supposed to respect law enforcement when they don't respect our young people?" She has a point!

The band has yet to release a statement. While this is totally silly on the surface, the video clip itself is pretty unsettling. Check it out above.
