Todd Harrell, the bassist for the rock band 3 Doors Down, has checked into a drug treatment facility after his arrest for DUI and vehicular homicide.

Todd Harrell is accused of causing a fatal crash in a Nashville suburb. Police say he admitted to drinking and taking prescription drugs before the wreck.

“He was released on bond and immediately went and checked himself into treatment,” said his attorney, Nashville criminal defense lawyer Ed Ryan.

The attorney declined to say where the musician is being treated. However, he said that the treatment is not court-ordered and that Harrell went voluntarily.


Harrell spent days in jail and was freed on $100,000 bond Tuesday.

The 41-year-old was under the influence when he was speeding down Interstate 40 and clipped the back of a pickup truck, police said last weekend.

The driver of the truck, 47-year-old Paul Shoulders Jr., was killed.

Harrell faces charges of vehicular homicide by intoxication, possession of a controlled substance, violation of the implied consent law and possession of contraband.

Harrell, who lives just outside of Nashville, is from Mississippi.
