Todd Harrell, a founding member of 3 Doors Down, has been kicked out of the band following his second DUI arrest.

Police in D’iberville, Miss., found the musician “slumped over the steering wheel” of his car Tuesday while stopped at an intersection, according to a police statement.

The bassist already had been suspended from the band and not allowed to participate in 3 Doors Down performances after his arrest in Nashville last year for vehicular manslaughter.

“Following yesterday’s incident, the band has extended Todd’s suspension indefinitely,” 3 Doors Down said in a statement. “We take this action to protect the image and integrity of the band and to encourage Todd to address and resolve his problems.”

In the Nashville case, Harrell was arrested after allegedly speeding and clipping a pickup truck, sending it down an embankment. The driver of the truck, Paul Howard Shoulders, 47, was killed, and Harrell admitted he had been drinking and taken prescription drugs, police say. That case is still pending.

The Mississippi-based band are best known for their hit song “Kryptonite”, released in 2000, and are reportedly in the studio working on a sixth album.
