Two Idaho cops detained a man after mistaking his gripes about Nickelback for an alleged drug deal.
The confrontation caught on video is only five minutes long and doesn’t show the beginning or the end of their interaction, but it captures the moments leading to a deputy pulling his gun on the young men and detaining one of them for reportedly “getting that attitude” and “being an ass—.”
But the two young men allege their conversation was taken out of context and lost in translation because the deputies had just missed a truck leaving the gas station moments prior playing Nickelback at an unfortunate volume.
“No, Nickelback. That guy was blaring Nickelback,” the man holding a cell phone camera defended. “There was no nickel sack involved.”
The two men were released at the gas station without any charges though.
