TORONTO — Todd Harrell, a founding member of rock band 3 Doors Down, has been arrested on suspicion of a drug-related DUI.

The Sun Herald in Mississippi reported Wednesday the bass player was charged in D’Iberville, north of Biloxi, on Tuesday night.

Officers found a man slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle at around 7:00 p.m.

Harrell was booked and released on a bond of $1,789.

The musician was convicted of the same charge following an arrest in July 2012.

Harrell is also awaiting trial on a charge of vehicular manslaughter by intoxication in Nashville. He was arrested in April 2013 following a traffic accident that killed a 47-year-old man.

3 Doors Down, whose hits include “Kryptonite” and “When I’m Gone,” replaced Harrell with bass player Justin Biltonen.
