2/17/2009 6:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary CollinsGary Collins has been charged with two counts of DUI for allegedly driving a motor home drunk January 31.

We're told 70-year-old Collins blew an unbelievable .29 ... nearly four times the legal limit.

Collins was busted near Santa Barbara after driving erratically.

Collins was charged by the Santa Barbara County D.A. with DUI and driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher. Collins has a prior DUI for which he served jail time.

BTW, according to a drinking chart, Collins would have to down 10 - 12 drinks in an hour to register .29.

Gary Collins' old gray ass, looking like wow, I finally got my picture taken and everybody will remember me now, '"see, I'm not dead after all!" I hope they lock this old crone up for a long time before he kills someone.

People seem to be confused. .29 means that .29 % of his blood was alcohol. NOT 29%! And .08 is not 8%, but actually .08%. It is possible to die with BAC of .30. Gary was darn close to that, and is lucky he was still concious.

Of course when clebs do bad things it is reported and Gary is no different. But for every bad thing they do, there are good things they do that go unreported. Gary got me my first job in Hollywood almost 25 years ago. I thank him from the bottom of my heart and hope that he and his family will find a way to get him back up from the bottom he has obviously fallen to.

how do you drink that much and still find a way to operate a vehicle. I am not a big fan of the current laws but that is a little over the top.

Looks like he may have a little drinky problem and may need the 12 step program. We have 4 friends that have done time for drinking and driving 2 or 3 times, Why don't they just drink at home or call a cab? I don't get it, but then I don't drink either .

Biophysics Nerd, it seems you are missing a leading decimal, there. 29%? I don't think so.

He should be shot. All drunk drivers are murderers in waiting.
