This is the third time Collins has gotten in trouble for drinking and driving. A year ago he pled no contest to DUI in a crash that killed the other driver, who was making an illegal left turn. And in 2002 he was found not guilty of DUI in Mississippi.

Collins is now on 4 years probation. A jail sentence is more or less given if he was driving drunk again.

Aside from his 8 year stint on Miss America, Collins was a former host of Hour Magazine and The Home Show, and also appeared in series such as The Sixth Sense and Born Free.
