Nuts Almost Kill David Lee Roth

Canadian police officers pulled over David Lee Roth last month in Oakland, Ontario and when they approached his car, they realized he was in anaphylactic shock - in layman's terms, having an allergic reaction to nuts.

The officers have been credited with saving Roth's life after he suffered the severe allergic reaction.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that:

The officers called an ambulance and kept Roth calm until paramedics arrived on the scene. Constable Chris Thompson admits he didn't realize that he was dealing with a famous rock star when he attended to the crisis.

He says, "At the time I wasn't star struck, I was just trying to help him. The guy stuck out like a sore thumb. He was wearing a little silk scarf and flashy clothing -- it's not something you see in Oakland too often."

Oakland, Ontario they mean.

So I guess the Van Halen rider should say no PEANUT M&Ms...
