PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - The original bassist for the rock band 3 Doors Down is accused of violating probation from a deadly drug-fueled crash in Tennessee because of his arrest in Mississippi on weapons and drug charges.

A judge in Jackson County, Mississippi, set bond Monday for Todd Harrell at $22,500 on three counts of possessing a firearm after a felony conviction.

But the Sun Herald reports that a condition of his probation in the 2013 wreck was that he go to prison if he violated probation.

He pleaded guilty in 2015 to vehicular homicide of 47-year-old Paul Shoulders Jr., whose pickup truck he clipped while driving 101 mph down Interstate 40 after taking oxycodone and alprazolam. He also pleaded guilty to other charges including illegal drug possession and bringing contraband into a penal institution.Copyright 2018 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
