NASHVILLE (AP) - State Rep. Curry Todd's arraignment on drunken driving and weapons charges has been delayed until next week.

The Collierville Republican was arrested 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.

Todd was scheduled to be arraigned Friday 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. But the hearing was delayed until Sept. 14.

Todd was a main sponsor of a state law allowing handgun carry permit holders to bring weapons into bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. It's unclear where Todd was traveling from at the time of his arrest.
