D’IBERVILLE — 3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell has been released on $1,000 bond after being arrested Thursday on a DUI-related charge following an accident in D’Iberville.

Police Chief Wayne Payne says in a news release that 40-year-old Todd Harrell was pulled over about 7:08 a.m. after failing to stop at an intersection and colliding with a pickup truck.

Payne says Harrell was charged with DUI and for not wearing a seatbelt. Harrell was released on bond after an appearance before Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.

Payne says an investigation continues. He says Harrell consented to a blood test and toxicology report is pending.

Harrell, former guitarist Matt Roberts and lead singer Brad Arnold formed the band in Escatawpa, Miss., in 1996. Roberts left the band in May with health problems.
