A judge ordered 3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell on Friday to move from Mississippi to Nashville so that he can be placed under house arrest until his trial on a charge of vehicular homicide begins.
- The order came after Harrell was arrested earlier this month on a DUI charge in Mississippi while he was out on bail for the April 2013 incident.
- In that incident, he was charged with driving under the influence when he crashed his car into a truck on a Nashville highway, killing the other vehicle’s driver.
- Nashville judge Mark Fishburn told Harrell he was not to drive under any circumstances and ordered him to surrender both his passport and driver’s license.
- According to the Tennessean, prosecutors argued that Harrell should be put behind bars until his trial begins to protect the community.
- But Harrell’s lawyer argued that house arrest would be more appropriate. The judge agreed with the defense but harshly criticized the musician’s doctor in the courtroom, accusing the physician of prescribing Harrell too many pain pills.
- Harrell has several DUI arrests on his record, with the April 2013 incident one of three in the last two years.
