Country legend Kenny Rogers was arrested for falsely identifying himself as country legend Kenny Rogers this morning. Pulled over for running a red light in downtown Nashville, Rogers told the officer his name and handed over his license and registration. Since the singer had not personally gone to the DMV to renew his license since 1994, the picture on the ID was some fifteen years out of date and bore little resemblance to the baby-skinned, expressionless 70-year-old of today. Reports arresting officer Dave Paulson: “I know Kenny Rogers, and that guy wasn’t Kenny Rogers. I used to watch The Gambler movies all the time with my Grandma. I know what he looks like. This guy almost looked Chinese or something. Are you telling me that was really Kenny Rogers?” Paulson added: “Gosh, I wish I hadn’t taunted him by singing ‘Islands in the Stream’ all the way back to the station.” After proving his identity and being released, Rogers headed straight to the DMV, where he is currently being questioned for trying to have Kenny Rogers’ driver’s license picture changed.
