3 Doors Down bassist arrested: Todd Harrell charged with vehicular homicide

3 Doors Down bassist arrested: Todd Harrell charged with vehicular homicide, On April 20, 3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell was trending after allegedly driving a car that hit another car. The accident killed the other driver and, according to Reuters via Yahoo!, the musician was charged with vehicular homicide on April 19 in Nashville.

The rocker was behind the wheel of his Cadillac CTS while on Tennessee Interstate 40 when he reportedly hit a Ford truck that smashed into a highway guardrail and then careened down an embankment.

Although the other driver was pronounced dead upon arrival at a nearby hospital, Harrell apparently only experienced minor injuries during the accident. After the incident, the musician was given a sobriety test and at that point, Harrell admitted to drinking and to taking both a pain pill (Lortab) and a tranquilizer (Xanax).

In addition, other narcotics were discovered by police after the 3 Doors Down bassist was arrested and taken to jail. These drugs, said to be hidden in the musician's socks, included Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.

By way of background, this particular recording artist had been in the same sort of trouble last year. He had reportedly hit another vehicle with his vehicle while driving in Mississippi and, allegedly, Harrell was driving under the influence when that crash occurred. However, the other driver did not die and, eventually, Harrell was set free after a $1,000 bond was paid.

This time the outcome is different in all ways for the 3 Doors Down bassist who was arrested once again. Not only was his alleged victim killed in the incident, but Todd Harrell is still incarcerated. The musician faces vehicular homicide charges as well as charges regarding the fact that he brought hidden controlled substances into jail. His bond is set at $100,000.

Meanwhile, 3 Doors Down, comprised of musicians Brad Arnold, Todd Harrell and Matt Roberts, is set to tour with Daughtry starting in July.
