NASHVILLE, TN -

(AP) - State Rep. Curry Todd has pleaded guilty to drunken driving and gun charges.

The Collierville Republican was arrested in October 2011 in Nashville after failing a roadside sobriety test. A loaded .38-caliber gun was found stuffed between the driver's seat and center console.

Todd is best known for sponsoring a law that allows people with handgun carry permits to be armed in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.

Todd was sentenced to 48 hours in jail on the drunken driving charge and to one year of probation for possession of a firearm while under the influence.

He will be barred from carrying a firearm while on probation. If he successfully completes the probation, he can petition the court to have his weapon charge expunged.
