NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State Rep. Curry Todd has a scheduled a fundraiser for a week after his first court appearance on drunken driving and gun charges.

The invitation to the $500-per-person event to be held at the home of a Nashville businessman on Nov. 8 was circulated by the Tennessee Lobbyists Association on Monday. Spokesman Mark Greene said the group forwards all fundraiser notices for sitting lawmakers but makes no endorsements.

Todd stepped down as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee last week following his arrest for failing a roadside sobriety test and refusing a breath test. A loaded .38-caliber gun was found in a holster stuffed next to the driver's seat.

The Collierville Republican and retired Memphis police officer's first court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 1.
