Former TV host Gary Collins was busted again for DUI last night. It is his second DUI in just the last couple of years. His first DUI resulted in the death of the other driver. Collins was booked and released last night.
Law enforcement tells TMZ Collins was busted at 9:16 last night by the CHP just south of Montecito, on suspicion of DUI. Law enforcement sources tell us Collins refused a field sobriety test but was subsequently given a blood alcohol test.
A year ago Collins pled no contest to DUI in an accident that resulted in the death of the other driver. Collins was not prosecuted for manslaughter, in part because the other driver caused the crash by making an illegal left. Collins is currently on 4 years probation. If he was driving drunk again, he’ll almost certainly go to jail.
It is kind of obvious that Collins has a drinking problem. He should go to jail and do more than the celebratory four hours behind bars. He should get a lot more time than Paris Hilton got in the slammer. Collins is a hazard to the community with his lack of self control with the bottle.
