Police have arrested Alabama-based physician Dr. Richard Snellgrove for supplying ex-3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts with the drugs that led to his fatal overdose in August, reports Billboard.
Roberts was a founding member and former guitarist for the rock group, but left the band amicably in 2012 to focus on ongoing health and circulation problems.
The 38-year-old rocker died while staying at a Wisconsin hotel the day before he was scheduled to appear at a charity event.
Law enforcement in West Bend, Wisconsin identified Snellgrove as the suspected source of the drugs, indicting him for illegal drug distribution. Prosecutors allege that the doctor reportedly prescribed five different controlled substances to different individuals, but they were all intended for Roberts.
