Three Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell is bad news thanks to an appetite for prescription drugs.
His first conviction on a DUI charge was in July 2012 (no jail time but he did have to attended a substance abuse program).
Then in April 2013, he was involved in an accident in Nashville where a 47-year old man the other vehicle died. He was allegedly under the effects of prescription drugs and alcohol that time, too. The criminal case–he’s charged with vehicular homicide–is still pending.
Last night, he was arrested on a third DUI charge when cops found him slumped over the wheel of a family member’s SUV. More allegations of prescription drug abuse. With this third DUI under his belt he might want to look into someone like this chicago criminal lawyer to take on his case.
The laws around DUI, especially ones that cause the death of another person, seems to differ from state to state, with some states allowing fines from $1,000 to $2,000 along with jail time that could vary from 1-30 years. The consequences to being charged with DUI are severe. It goes without saying that there should be no reason to get behind a wheel under the influence but, if you do, you may want to consider getting a defense attorney to help with your case to minimize its damage to your life.
