A US court sentenced co-founder and bass guitarist of the 3 Doors Down rock band Todd Harrell to 10 years in prison for illegal possession of firearms, Fox News and the Associated Press reported . He will be taken to a colony in Mississippi.

In June, Harrell’s wife complained to the police about his physical abuse during an argument. The officers who arrived at the house found weapons and drugs. Then the musician was detained.

Harrell is not the first time goes to prison. He was already serving a sentence from 2013 to 2015 for having knocked a person to death when he was driving. After that, he actually left the group, and was replaced by Justin Biltonon.

In 1996, Harrell founded 3 Doors Down along with Brad Arnold (vocals, drums) and Matt Roberts (guitar). The group has released six studio albums, which sold tens of millions of copies. The most famous song of the band is Kryptonite.
