State Rep. Curry Todd pleaded guilty Friday to DUI and possessing a gun while under the influence, charges that resulted from a 2011 traffic stop in Nashville.
Todd, 65 (R-Collierville), will serve 48 hours in jail, minus the eight hours he was jailed at the time of his arrest, pay a $35 fine, perform 24 hours of community service and lose the right to carry a weapon during a year of probation. He must have an interlock device installed on his car that prevents it from starting if his breath indicates he’s over the legal alcohol limit, complete an alcohol safety course and participate in a victim-impact panel conducted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
He was also under the influence of a medication and (here’s the elitist part) refused a breath test.
I think he was appropriately disciplined.
