3 Doors Down Bassist Enters Rehab Following Arrest

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The bassist for the rock band 3 Doors Down has voluntarily checked himself into a drug treatment facility after bonding out of jail.

Defense attorney Ed Ryan said he could not disclose where Robert Todd Harrell is being treated.

Harrell is facing multiple charges, including vehicular homicide by intoxication, after being accused of driving under the influence and causing a fatal interstate crash in a Nashville suburb last weekend.

Police said the 41-year-old bassist was speeding down Interstate 40 in his Cadillac CTS when he clipped the back of a pickup truck, causing a crash that killed the driver of the truck.

Police said Harrell acknowledged drinking and taking the prescription drugs Lortab and Xanax.

He was also accused of bringing Xanax, oxycodone and oxymorphone pills into the jail concealed in his sock.

Harrell was released on $100,000 bond Tuesday afternoon. The bassist is due in court on May 29.

On Monday, the band canceled its U.S. appearances for April and May.
