overcooked curry

The blog Whiskeyfire
has this picture and this item from the Associated Press:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The sponsor of the law that made it legal to carry a gun into bars in Tennessee is facing charges of possession of a handgun while under the influence and drunken driving.

Rep. Curry Todd, a Collierville Republican, was pulled over in Nashville late Tuesday, according to court documents. Police said he failed a roadside sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer test. A loaded .38-caliber gun was found in a holster stuffed between the driver's seat and center console.

A police affidavit said Todd was unsteady on his feet, "almost falling down at times." It concluded that Todd was "obviously very impaired and not in any condition to be carrying a loaded handgun."

Todd told officers that he had consumed two drinks when he was pulled over, according to the affidavit.

The blog also has a quote from Todd worth reading. Check it out.

What are the chances this mope will be re-elected? In Tennessee, probably pretty good.
