NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The state Safety Department says Rep. Curry Todd can keep his handgun carry permit despite being indicted on drunken driving and weapons charges.
Spokeswoman Jennifer Donnals said Tuesday the Collierville Republican can continue to be armed in public while the case is pending. A conviction would cause the permit to be suspended for one year.
Todd was arrested during a Nashville traffic stop in October after failing a roadside sobriety test. A loaded .38-caliber gun was found stuffed in a holster between the driver's seat and center console.
The Tennessean newspaper first reported that a grand jury Friday returned indictments against Todd on charges of drunken driving, possession of a firearm while under the influence and violating the state's implied consent law for refusing a breath alcohol test.
