LATEST: Three Doors Down bass player TODD HARRELL has been acquitted of a single assault charge following a fight at a gas station last month (05MAR04).

Harrell was charged with hitting the husband of a newspaper carrier after he was accused of stealing newspapers from a vending machine outside an Escatawpa, Mississippi, gas station.

RONNIE BOULWARE claimed Harrell kicked him in the groin and punched him, but the rocker maintained he was provoked and acted in self-defence.

Harrell says, "I just beat him to the punch, that's all."
