D’IBERVILLE, Miss.–Driving while on drugs is the charge against Todd Harrell, former bassist for Three Doors Down. His trial is expected to start today on the Mississippi coast. Harrell is already on house arrest after a fatal accident in Nashville where he was the driver.
Harrell was effectively fired from the group in 2014 after his February arrest where he was found in his car on a city street in D’Iberville. Police said he was slumped over and later tested positive for drugs.
That evidence will be brought up today in court in D’Iberville. The trial is set for 1 p.m. The charge is second offense driving under the influence of something other than alcohol.
Harrell’s situation in Nashville has yet to be resolved. He was charged in April 2013 with a wreck on a Nashville freeway that killed 47-year-old Paul Shoulders, Jr. Harrell could be facing serious jail time in that wreck.
He was also previously convicted of DUI in Mississippi in 2013. In that incident, Harrell tested positive for Oxycodone and Xanax while driving.
