3 Doors Down bassist Robert Todd Harrell has been charged with vehicular manslaughter after he was involved in a deadly crash that killed the driver of a pickup truck in Nashville last Friday.
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said that Harrell was speeding on a local highway when he clipped the truck, which then fell down an embankment and overturned, Reuters reports. The driver, 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr., was ejected from the truck and did not survive the crash.
Harrell, who police believe to have been intoxicated, showed signs of impairment and was charged early Saturday morning.
“He acknowledged consuming hard cider and taking prescription Lortab and Xanax,” the police said. Authorities also found a plastic bag filled with eight Xanax pills, 24 Oxycodone pills, and four Oxymorphone pills hidden in his sock when he was brought in for booking.
