Harrell will appear in court in Mississippi on Monday to face the DUI charges relating to his arrest on February 18th 2014. He was arrested by police after an anonymous caller spotted him slumped over the wheel of his car. This is the second time Harrell has faced DUI charges. He was first arrested for a DUI in 2013, a month before he was involved in a fatal car crash in Nashville.
Harrell reportedly clipped another vehicle whilst speeding on a highway in April 2013. The vehicle in question was forced off the road and crashed. The driver, 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., died as a result. Harrell was charged with vehicular homicide. He attempted to appeal against the charge in January 2014 but his appeal was not successful.
Harrell was kicked out of 3 Doors Down in 2014. He had been on suspension since 2013, a decision the band made after Harrell was charged with vehicular homicide. In the case, Harrell was also accused of driving impaired by prescription drugs and alcohol.
