Another Harrell DUI
How many more DUIs can 3 Doors Down’s Todd Harrell get? He was arrested again Tuesday night. This time in Mississippi where he was found slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle. A citizen actually reported seeing an impaired driver and police arrived on the scene. This is a second-offense DUI, which involves other substances other than alcohol. Police are having to do blood tests to determine what else the bassist was on. He’s free on bond, but no date has been set for his next court appearance. Dude is already facing vehicular homicide in Tennessee where he was busted before for driving under the influence. Todd Harrell is becoming synonymous with DUI. Sad, really.
