The family of late 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts has filed a lawsuit against a south Alabama doctor, saying that he was responsible for the musician’s death. According to, the suit was filed against Dr. Richard Snellgrove, who was Roberts’ doctor, and Rite Aid Corporation. It alleges that Snellgrove prescribed Roberts high levels of opioids for a six-year period starting in 2006, causing the musician to become addicted to the drugs. Snellgrove allegedly continued to prescribe the same drugs to Roberts for years, even after Roberts went to rehab for his addiction in 2012. Rite Aid was named because one of the drugs in Roberts’ system at the time of his death was purchased at a Rite Aid pharmacy in Spanish Fort, Alabama. Roberts died of a prescription drug overdose on August 20th, 2016 in a Wisconsin hotel.
