The Kensington Police Service of Prince Edward Island are using the threat to attract more attention to their seasonal DUI campaign. They say via Facebook: "The holiday season is upon us and that means more social events, staff parties and alcohol-based libation.
"Know that the Kensington Police Service will be out looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive. When we catch you - and we will - on top of a hefty fine, criminal charge and a year's driving suspension, we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the office's copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail."here.
After replacing Bill Wyman, who quit after 31 years with the Stones, Jones has appeared on all of the band's material since 1994 and also stars on new album Blue And Lonesome.
Asked if he's like to be a full member of the band, Jones tells the BBC: "It has not really come up very often. Obviously that would be a really wonderful thing for a person like me. I have been a sideman for more than 30 years now.
"I think most musicians, somewhere deep down inside, even if they are sidemen, or if they are hired players, there is a desire to be in a band. And I would not be being completely honest if I said that it would not be wonderful, it would not be amazing, to be considered and, you know, jump into this organization as a full member.
"But that is not a decision I am in a position to make. I just play the best that I can and the rest of it I don't have any control over." Read morehere.

Asked what is the most metal album she's ever owned, Jansen responded with, "I mainly listen to metal, so they are all metal albums. But the most metal?
"Some would say Slayer, but I think they're a dreadful band. Unbelievably boring. Terrible. Apparently it's not metal to say that, but it's a personal opinion."

And Vengeance says God Damn is the next track he hopes to create a video for - and he vows to stick to his tried and tested method of coming up with "f***ed up scenarios" for the clip.
He tells TeamRock Radio: "We've been talking really seriously about doing something for God Damn. And I think we will take it in a completely different direction than The Stage. What direction I don't quite know.
"But being the biggest cynic and critic of modern music videos, it's going to have to be something really spectacular or else I don't even file like there's a point in doing the video." Read more and watch The Stage videohere.
It was the third track the band ever recorded - following Thrust and Pain. A statement on the stream reads: "Lake Of Fire is a very primal Trivium, but it shows that all the elements of the band fans know today, have been there since the beginning.
"Clean melody, intense speed - the sonic interplay of light and dark, melody and brutality - it was all there from the start. Lyrically, Lake Of Fire sets an intense stage for the visions of the underworld it invokes." Listen to the songhere.
Iwers says: "It has been almost 20 years of fun, and I am eternally grateful to you all for all the support you have given me and the rest of the guys throughout all these years. You made it all possible.

Ozzy had the following to say (via BraveWords), "It saddened me to hear of my friend Tony Martell's passing. Tony was the only record executive to believe in me when he signed me to Epic Records as a solo artist in 1980. He will be missed."
Sharon shared, "Tony was always a mensch of a guy, one of the few good ones where you kind of thought, 'Are you really in the music industry?' [Laughter] "I met him in 1975 because he'd signed ELO and Jet Records [to Epic] when I was working for my father [manager/Jet founder Don Arden]. When Ozzy started [his solo career in 1980] people turned him down because there hadn't been a lead singer that had left a band and become successful at that time, but Tony believed in him and signed him -- and how many years later are we, and we're still signed to Epic and it's all down to Tony. I must add that Ozzy is truly, truly saddened by this.
"I don't think even Tony at the time realized what he was starting -- that [the T.J. Martell Foundation] would become so hugely successful. So many people who were ill reached out to Tony for advice and help -- people in the industry that he didn't even work with would call him and he'd give advice about doctors, about treatment. He'd made a promise to his son and he wanted to see that promise through, and he went on to help probably hundreds of people. People like him are so rare." Read the BraveWords report for morehere.
But a California judge has now ruled against his company WBS Inc. who claimed to own the Ratt brand. When Blotzer secured the name last year, he made several demands that original member Juan Croucier stopped calling his project 'Ratt's Juan Croucier' and refrained from advertising himself as "the other voice of Ratt."
But court papers show that five members of the band - Blotzer, Croucier, Warren DeMartini, Robbin Crosby and Stephen Pearcy - formed the Ratt Partnership in 1985, so that "no partner could transfer his interest without the unanimous written consent of all partners."
When WBS Inc. sent Croucier a letter sacking him in 1997, only Blotzer, Pearcy and DeMartini were members - and because of that, they insisted they didn't need his consent when transferring the Ratt trademark from the partnership to WBS.
However, the court found the letter to be insufficient as it was signed only by Blotzer and Pearcy and there was "no evidence that DeMartini ever consented to Croucier's expulsion."
The court say as there's no evidence that Croucier was expelled, "WBS cannot make the threshold showing that it has an ownership interest in the marks, and its trademark claims fail." Read morehere.
The book also includes their 22nd studio album, Bad Magic, which launched last year. Metallica's James Hetfield recently called upon the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame to inaugurate Motorhead, who have been eligible for election since 2009.
He said: "There are so many great bands that haven't been acknowledged - and if they do or don't, it's not up to me. It's just a nod, a tip of the cap. What does it really mean to be in there? I don't know. But to some of these bands it might mean the world.
"With the passing of Lemmy, it's really, really important for me to see Motorhead acknowledged in that - because there's no more rock'n'roll person on this planet than Lemmy." Read morehere.

"This is going to be a special run - one that all of us look forward to bringing to life." See the tour dateshere.

Earlier this year, Hellfest boss Ben Barbaud vowed to improve on the festival for 2017 after taking on board criticism from fans. In an open letter, he said: "The areas in front of the two main stages will have to be readjusted.

We organizers will have to adapt." Read morehere.
