BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — 3 Doors Down bassist Robert Todd Harrell has lost an appeal of his 2013 driving while impaired conviction.

At a hearing Wednesday before Judge Robin Alfred Midcalf, the Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/JIf3dZ ) the 41-year-old Harrell was fined $1,000 and given a suspended two-day jail sentence. He also was ordered to enroll in impairment and victim impact programs within a month.

Harrell was convicted of DUI after he crashed his Cadillac into the back of a pickup truck in D'Iberville in 2012. A D'Iberville police officer testified Harrell initially told police that he had taken a Zanaflex pill the night before. But after consenting to a blood test, he told the officer he had five different prescription pills in his system.

Harrell's attorney, Adam Miller of Pasgacoula, was not available for comment.
