Lawmaker's Hearing On DUI, Gun Charges Delayed

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A delay in state Representatives Curry Todd's court case on drunken driving and gun charges will move proceedings until next month.

The Collierville Republican was arrested in October 2011 after failing a roadside sobriety test. A loaded .38-caliber gun was found stuffed between the driver's seat and center console.

Todd is best known for sponsoring a law that allows people with handgun carry permits to be armed in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of drunken driving, possession of a firearm while under the influence and refusing a breath alcohol test.

Todd had been scheduled to appear in court on Friday, but the hearing was moved to January 11. His attorney said he was still in talks with prosecutors.
