Doctor arrested for overdose death of 3 Doors Down rocker

Three months after Matt Roberts overdosed on prescription drugs, an arrest has been made.

Authorities indicted Alabama physician Dr. Richard Snellgrove on November 16 for allegedly providing drugs to the 3 Doors Down rocker, reports Fox 6 News.

The site adds Snellgrove allegedly prescribed five different drugs — including methadone, hydrocodone, loraxepam and fentanyl — with different names, all intended for Roberts.

Roberts, 38, was found dead in late August at a Wisconsin hotel. He was set to perform at a benefit in West Bend when police were called around 7 a.m. on reports of an unconscious man.

“There’s no satisfaction in seeing a doctor arrested,” said the singer’s father Darrell Roberts. “I don’t have any bitterness, no anger, nothing like that towards the doctor, but I’m also aware this is a serious issue in the medical community all over the United States.”
