Tennessee State Rep. Curry Todd declined a plea deal offered by prosecutors during a settlement hearing Tuesday following his arrest last month on drunken driving and weapons charges.

Todd appeared with his attorney, Worrick Robinson, and made a brief statement, apologizing for the events of the night in court.

The Collierville Republican also pledged to “make a better person of myself.”

He told a gathering of reporters after the hearing that “everybody is capable of making a mistake.”

Details of the plea deal offered were not released.

A new hearing date is set for January 10.

Todd, a retired Memphis police officer, stepped down as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee following an October 11 traffic stop that led to his arrest on charges of drunken driving, refusing a breath test and possessing a firearm while intoxicated.

His attorney declined to say whether Todd had been at a bar before being pulled over.
