3 Doors Down has just removed a string of upcoming dates from their calendar in response to the recent arrest of bassist Robert Todd Harrell on a charge of vehicular homicide following a car accident in Tennessee that claimed the life of Paul Howard Shoulders Jr.

A brief statement from the band’s rep reads, “Out of respect to Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr., and his family, 3 Doors Down has cancelled the band's four scheduled U.S. April / May appearances. They will resume touring May 31 in Moscow, and return to the U.S. for scheduled dates in July.”

According to The Tennessean , police say Harrell clipped Shoulders’ pickup truck in the Nashville area, on Interstate 40, while driving drunk on Friday night. Shoulders' truck struck a guardrail, went down an embankment and flipped over.  Shoulders, who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, was ejected from his car. He was pronounced dead at a Nashville hospital.

While Harrell was booked in jail, police say, he was found to be in possession of eight Xanax pills and a total of 28 pills of the prescription painkillers Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.

Harrell is currently in jail on charges of vehicular homicide while intoxicated, drug possession, violating implied consent laws and bringing contraband into a jail. His bond was set at 100 thousand dollars.

Here are the cancelled tour dates:

4/26 -- Bossier City, LA, Horseshoe Bossier City
4/28 -- Jacksonville, FL, Welcome to Rockville Festival
5/4 -- Nashville, TN, War Memorial Auditorium
5/5 -- Concord, NC, Carolina Rebellion @ Rock City Campgrounds
