The Associated Press is reporting that actor Gary Collins was arrested for DUI by California Highway patrol this weekend. According to the report, Santa Barbara deputies pulled Collins over Saturday evening after noticing him allegedly driving a motor home erratically. The 70-year-old was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after failing a field sobriety test.
According to reports, this is allegedly Collins’ third DUI arrest. This weekend’s 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 is known for his roles in the film Airport, and for starring in the 1972 television series The Sixth Sense.
Under California law, multiple DUI convictions can subject a person to jail or even prison time, depending on how the case is charged. A DUI conviction can have serious repercussions on a person’s liberty, driver’s license priviledges and can cost thousands of dollars in fines and court costs.
