Todd Harrell, bassist for the group 3 Doors Down, was arrested late Friday night and charged with vehicular homicide following a deadly crash in Nashville, TN.

According to police, Harrell was driving at a high rate of speed when his car clipped a Ford pickup truck ... which then went out of control, struck a guardrail, traveled down an embankment and overturned.

Police say the driver of the pickup was not wearing a seatbelt. He was transferred to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Harrell showed signs of impairment during field sobriety tests and admitted to police he had been drinking hard cider and taking prescription Lortab (a painkiller) and Xanax.

While being booked at the jail, Davidson County Sheriff's deputies say they discovered a plastic bag in Harrell's sock that contained more Xanax pills along with Oxycodone and Oxymorphone pills.

Harrell was charged with vehicular homicide and bringing controlled substances into the jail and is being held on $100,000 bond.

Harrell was arrested last year for DUI ... an incident in which he also crashed into another vehicle.

I don't see how he alone could be charged with vehicular manslaughter, I think his lawyers will have a good case considering the guy he hit wasn't wearing a seatbelt which if I recall is the LAW, therefore he is somewhat at fault for not wearing a seatbelt. Had he been wearing a seatbelt like required by LAW he may have not been injured so gravely.

There def isn't any form of celeb justice in TN! And prescription pain killers are truly an epidemic. He is going to go thru hell, going thru detox in jail. But the family of the victim is going through their own hell as well. Feel bad for all the above. This **** happens all the time, but it still is so sad for everyone involved!

Lemme Just say this...right about now he's facing the dawn of one MEAN A S S withdrawal from those oxy's. worst feeling ever. It's so bad he's probably not even thinking about the innocent person he killed. All he's thinking is "Damn I gotta get high NOW!!!"

Admitted to drinking? Would have been better for everyone if on 4/20 he had stuck with the weed. R.I.P.

What an dumb ass for driving high and drunk. Second, for admitting to the cops that he was on something!

Entitled douchebag. This guy has gotten away with DUIs so many times, it was almost enevitable this would happen. He's like the male Lindsay Lohan, only with less coverage because he's not as big of a star.
