3 Doors Down is standing by bassist and co-founder Todd Harrell as he faces charges of Vehicular Homicide in Tennessee.
Authorities have accused Harrell of being impaired and speeding on April 20, when he was involved in an auto accident that killed Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr. He's free on $100,000 bail and is going through rehab, with a trial date set for July 23.
While touring in Europe, 3 Doors frontman Brad Arnold tells us the group is hoping for the best for its bandmate:
"He's just in my prayers, y'know? That's my brother, and he always will be. There's never been a time in my life that I don't remember knowing him, and he actually sent me a text a couple days ago and it had been awhile since I talk to him. And he said he was doing really good and he wished he was here, obviously. It's just, there's nothing really good I can say about it. It's very unfortunate, and my heart goes out to everybody involved...All I can do is just say a prayer for him, man. Beyond that it's out of my hands, and I wish him the best."
Harrell had a previous Driving Under the Influence arrest in 2012. 3 Doors Down has replaced Harrell for the moment with another bassist, Justin Biltonen.
The group wraps up its European tour on Saturday (June 22) and begins a North American run with Daughtry on July 3.
