NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – State Rep. Curry Todd's hearing on charges of drunken driving and carrying a loaded handgun while intoxicated has been delayed until next month.
The Collierville Republican was arrested in a neighborhood near Vanderbilt and Belmont universities on Oct. 11.
Todd is a retired Memphis police officer and the main architect of a new state law allowing handgun carry permit holders to be armed in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.
He stepped down as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee after his arrest.
