NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Bassist Robert Todd Harrell of the rock band 3 Doors Down has been charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication after an interstate crash claimed the life of another motorist in the Nashville area, police said.
The 41-year-old musician remained jailed early Sunday in connection with the fatal accident late Friday night on Interstate 40 that left 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders Jr. dead, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said.
On 3 Doors Down's official site, the band said this:
"We are deeply saddened by the passing of Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time."
Just last week, Council Bluffs' Stir Cove concert series announced the addition of 3 Doors Down to its summer lineup. The band, along with Daughtry, was slated to play a July 31 show, tickets on sale May 3.
3 Doors Down has not yet issued a statement on how Harrell's charge will affect the tour.
