3 Doors Down Bassist Tried Sneaking Drugs Into Jail
3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell has been released from police custody after being involved in a fatal car crash at the weekend, NME reports. He was freed after posting a $100,000 bond, just as more details have emerged about what took place in the crash last Friday, April 21. Harrell's Cadillac clipped a 2003 Ford F-150 truck which then hit a guardrail, skidded down and embankment and was finally overturned. The truck driver was Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., a 47-year-old, and authorities note that he was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. Police say Harrell "showed signs of impairment" and that "he acknowledged consuming hard cider and taking prescription Lortab." He's also been charged with trying to bring controlled substances into custody, with a deputy Sheriff finding 36 pills of various forms on the bassist during a search. Harrell will face these charges in court today, April 25. A statement on the 3 Doors Down website reads: "We are deeply saddened by the passing of Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time." The band have also cancelled a series of US tour dates, and plan to return to the stage on May 31 in Moscow.
