Running back Alex Collins was arrested on Friday morning after he crashed his car into a tree near the Ravens facility.  It was later reported that he was found asleep in the car waiting for a tow truck.

Police were called and the officer searched the vehicle after he smelled marijuana in the car.  Five ounces of marijuana and a gun were found in the car.  Collins was waived by the Ravens shortly after the arrest.

Via Baltimore County:

Police were dispatched to the 10000 block of Dolfield Road, 21117 around 6:48 a.m. Friday morning when a passerby called 9-1-1 after seeing a black Chevrolet Corvette crashed into a tree. Officers located the driver asleep in the driver seat, and identified him as Alexander Jamonte Collins (24) of the unit block of Woodfield Court, 21136. The driver indicated he was not injured, but had fallen asleep waiting for a towing service to respond. During the initial contact with Collins the officer detected the odor of marijuana inside the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed a large glass jar on the front passenger side floorboard containing approximately 5 ounces of marijuana, the equivalent of approximately 141.75 grams (possession of under 10 grams of marijuana is considered personal use and punishable under Maryland law by a civil citation). A handgun was recovered from the front driver side floorboard. Collins was placed under arrest at 7:35 a.m.

A down season last year and an arrest for drugs and a gun aren’t going to help Collins continue his career in the NFL.  This is what happens when you get a little bit of success and lose focus.
