D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - Todd Harrell's former bandmates in 3 Doors Down are distancing themselves from the troubled bassist.

Harrell hasn't toured with the band since last year when he was charged with vehicular homicide and five other charges in Tennessee. At that time, another bassist was hired, and the band continued with its tour. Harrell was suspended, pending the resolution of those criminal charges.

Now, following another DUI arrest in D'Iberville this week, the band has decided to extend that suspension "indefinitely."

3 Doors Down posted a statement on the band's official website Thursday, saying, "We take this action to protect the image and integrity of the band and to encourage Todd to address and resolve his problems."

Harrell has an arraignment hearing Friday, February 28 in Nashville. The Davidson County Criminal Court Clerk's office confirmed a motion has been filed to revoke his $100,000 bond.

Harrell already has one DUI conviction in D'Iberville. But jail time was suspended in that case on the condition he stay out of trouble for six months.
