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.

He stepped down as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee after his arrest.
