Chairman of the Republican Caucus Firearms Task Force and sponsor of a law allowing handguns in bars and dining establishments that serve alcohol has been arrested for drunk driving. Curry Todd was pulled over by police after seen swerving between cars and speeding.
Todd was pulled over near Vanderbilt University where he failed a field sobriety test. Officers say he was slurring his words and was unsteady on his feet. They also found a loaded .38 caliber handgun between the driver and passenger seats. He has been charged with drunk driving and possessing a handgun while intoxicated.
Todd, who is also a retired policeman, has since resigned as chairman of the firearms task force. He was released after posting $3,000 bail.
