3 Doors Down bassist's misdemeanor DUI case continued

D'IBERVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A new judge will preside over the misdemeanor DUI trial of 3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell.
Harrell was to have been in D'Iberville city court on Tuesday to stand trial. The trial was continued because Harrell remains in a drug treatment facility that he entered after he was charged with DUI vehicular homicide in Nashville in April.
Harrell's trial in Mississippi has been postponed several times since his arrest July 19, 2012. He is accused of being under the influence of 5 prescription pills when his Cadillac rear-ended a pickup truck at a D'Iberville intersection.
Municipal Judge Albert Fountain stepped down from the case. Jackson County Justice Court Judge David McVeay will now preside.
Among the hits 3 Doors Down is known for are "When I'm Gone" and "Kryptonite."
