Memphis, Tenn. (AP) – After an arrest warrant was issued for State. Rep. Curry Todd was issued on Monday, he was booked into the Criminal Justice Center on Tuesday Afternoon. Authorities say state Rep. Curry Todd has been charged after failing to respond to requests to be interviewed by sheriff’s officials in regards to stealing his opponents’ campaign signs. Luckily for Todd, his opponent posted his bond.

  • Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said deputies witnessed various videos of Todd stealing campaign signs 
  • Mark Lovell, one of Curry’s opponents in the primary race, posted his bond
  • Lovell defeated the incumbent Curry Todd for the seat of the Tennessee House of Representatives for the 95th District on August 4
  • Todd faces misdemeanor charges for theft of property just two days before the election

I just don’t think we need to leave our state representatives in jail. Just let them go before a judge and let the judge decide what he wants to do with them. – Mark Lovell

  • Todd told media outlets he had permission from the property owners to remove the signs and replace them with his own, although the photo shows him running with them

    Todd was arrested in 2011 on DUI and gun charges in Nashville where he pleaded guilty in 2013; he was pulled over while drunk and had a loaded handgun

  • “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal,” Lovell added in a statement. “He’s already got a lot of skeletons in his closet”
  • Lovell put out more campaign signs Tuesday night – in hopes they remain where they are placed
  • Todd has raised about $189,000.00 according to new campaign finance reports released in early July – Mark Lovell, on the other hand, raised about $5,600.00 & was able to defeat the incumbent by a long run
