Rep. Todd returns to work at Capitol after DUI arrest

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

For the first time since his arrest on DUI and weapons charges, State Rep. Curry Todd was back at work at the Capitol Wednesday.

Todd was polite but clearly did not want to answer any questions about last week's events to Channel 4.

He received a warm welcome and words of support from colleagues, but when we caught him walking in the door he didn't have much to say.

"I'm just here to represent my constituents," Todd said.

He added he really couldn't talk on the advice of his attorney before quickly slipping into the Fiscal Review Committee meeting.

It was his first time back to Legislative Plaza, one week after his arrest in Nashville for driving under the influence while in possession of a loaded handgun.

At the end of the hearing, Todd slipped out the back door and evaded reporters.

Earlier this week, Todd resigned as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee until this matter is resolved.

His next court date is scheduled for Nov. 1.
