Rep. Curry Todd, the lawmaker behind "guns in bars" bill, was arrested for DUI, having gun under influence
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WVLT) -- State Representative Curry Todd (R) will have his day in court. He'll face a judge on Jan. 10 to answer to drunken driving and gun charges.
The Collierville Republican is apologizing to friends, family and constituents and pledging to "make a better person of myself."
Todd appeared in a Nashville court Tuesday to agree to the court date but did not enter a plea. Todd's attorney, Worrick Robinson, said prosecutors made an offer to resolve the case but didn't go into the the details.
Todd told assembled reporters afterward that "everybody is capable of making a mistake."
Police on Oct. 11 charged Todd with drunken driving, refusing to take a breath alcohol test and possessing a firearm while intoxicated.
His attorney declined to say whether Todd had been at a bar before being pulled over.
