Rep. Todd Arrested on DUI | Tennessee Report


Tennessee state Rep. Curry Todd, a Republican from Collierville, was arrested in Nashville last night on charges of drunk driving and carrying a loaded handgun.

The arresting officer’s affidavit states that Todd was “extremely unsteady on his feet” and that he was “almost falling down at times.” The officer observed Todd was “obviously very impaired and not in any condition to be carrying a loaded handgun.” (His mugshot is at right.)

A former Memphis police officer, Todd was first elected to the Tennessee Legislature in 1998. He currently serves as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee.

In 2009 and 2010 Todd sponsored legislation allowing Tennesseans with firearm-carry permits to possess their guns in restaurants that serve alcohol, provided they do not consume alcohol.

I'm glad he was busted. He could have killed or harmed others. As far as HE goes: lousy choices, lousy life."

:lol:

Where's the outrage? The guy committed an actual crime.

Remember Anthony Weiner? No Laws Broke?

Republicans were in an uproar. They wanted him out.

Well?
Republicans I know wanted Weiner to stay on and keep on doing damage to his party. Who asked for him to leave? Any Republican leader or politician of any importance that you can name for us?

Sponsor of TN guns in bars bill charged with having gun while driving drunk

Tennessee state Rep. Curry Todd, a lead sponsor of a law allowing handgun carry permit holders to bring guns into bars, has been arrested on charges of drunken driving and possession of a gun while under the influence.

He allegedly failed a roadside sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer.

A loaded Smith & Wesson 38 Special was found in a holster stuffed between the driver seat and the center console.

A spokesman for the House Republican Caucus had no immediate comment on the arrest.

I'm sure they didn't!!!!
