SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Todd Harrell, former bassist for 3 Doors Down, has been placed under house arrest in Nashville as he awaits trial on a charge of vehicular homicide.

Harrell appeared in Davidson County Criminal Court Friday morning where a judge ordered him to be placed on an electronic monitoring device.

In April 2013, Harrell was arrested after an accident on Interstate 40 that resulted in the death of Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., 47.  Shoulders was ejected from his vehicle.

Prosecutors in Nashville moved to revoke Harrell's bond after he was arrested in D'Iberville February 18 on a charge of DUI other, meaning authorities believe Harrell was under the influence of a substance other than alcohol.

Harrell was also charged with DUI in D'Iberville in July 2012.  In August, Harrell was convicted of that charge, but appealed the case.  In January, Harrell was sentenced to two days in jail and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine

Harrell was ordered to stay in Nashville where he will only be allowed to travel to his attorney's office or court proceedings.

His next court appearance in Nashville is scheduled for April 25.
