3 Doors Down bassist placed on house arrest while awaiting trial.

3 Doors Down bassist Robert Todd Harrell had to scramble to find a home in the in the Nashville, Tennessee area on Friday in order to avoid going to jail until he stands trial on vehicular homicide. Issues arose after a judge said he would only allow Harrell to live under house arrest if he stayed in Davidson County. Harrell does not normally live in Tennessee. Within half an hour, Harrell had a home in the area. His house arrest requires that he spend every hour in the residence, with the exception of legal appointments. He will also be required to wear an electronic leg monitor and keep a landline in the home.

Harrell was charged after a crash last year that killed a man. He has pleaded not guilty, but he was picked up two weeks ago for driving under the influence of a substance other than alcohol.

Friday’s hearing was attended by all of the members of 3 Doors Down, who recently suspended him from the group. More
