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.

No seatbelt, huh? So I wonder if they will have to prove his death was actually due to the crash or because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Why do the drunks bounce and not die, but innocents do? This is a terrible sorrow for the dead man and his family...the victims of a this serial drunk driver. I. wish people would stop drinking and pill popping, still thinking they have a right to be on the road. He will get well deserved time in prison, where people who don't control themselves must go.

When you are caught driving drunk twice with a "bag" of opioids and Xannies the second time, you are officially a drunk and drug addict. We have 4 choices when we get to this point, jail, nuthouse, morgue or sobriety. apparently you just chose JAIL. good luck with that

Lock him away and melt the key down into a fashionable ring I can giggle at when I think of him rotting in hell.

He ALREADY went through a 12-Step religious AA/NA cult "HIGHER POWER" Treatment Program.....

How come the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult's "HIGHER POWER" did not keep him from drinking, drugging, and driving?
