The arrest comes roughly 13 months after Collins pleaded no contest to driving under the influence and served a four-day jail sentence in a suburb of Los Angeles. He was placed on two years of informal probation, and records show he was admonished about the dangers of drunken driving.

Records also indicate he was convicted of DUI in 2004 in Malibu. They did not indicate whether he has an attorney.
