3 Doors Down ex-bassist arrested yet again; cops say they found guns, drugs during domestic violence investigation

An original member of the band 3 Doors Down is in trouble with the law again after an arrest last week at his home in Mississippi.

According to USA Today, 46-year-old bassist Todd Harrell was arrested Friday after law enforcement officers responded to an alarm at the St. Martin residence.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell released a statement indicating deputies spoke to Harrell’s wife while at the home. She reportedly accused him of physical violence during an altercation the two had earlier in the day.

Local authorities went on to obtain a search warrant for the home after allegedly spotting guns and drugs during their initial investigation.

Harrell was subsequently arrested and is expected to face criminal charges including being a felon in possession of a firearm. He also faces misdemeanor counts including possession of a controlled substance and simple assault domestic violence.

The felony conviction already on his record dates back to 2015 when he served a sentence in connection with a crash two years earlier that left the driver of another vehicle dead.

He served two years in prison for vehicular homicide, as reported by the New York Daily News.

Harrell was also arrested in 2014, that time on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs.

TMZ reported that he was also wanted for a probation violation out of Tennessee and was jailed without bond following his latest arrest.
