Gary Collins Charged with DUI -- .29!!!

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.

This is the fault of our politicians for not setting up a public transportation grid throughout California. We need higher taxes and more government spending to curtail d&d. This is a social problem, not the individual's responsibility. Also, any person convicted of a DUI should get 2-3 months of government-paid rehab.

How many times will the court system allow this to happen before he kills innocent people??? If he want to do himself in, that is his business. But when he chooses to selfishly and irresponsibly drink and then drive, putting other people at risk, then something needs to be done. I don't care if he's a celebrity or not!!!!!!
Allowing it to continue and/or a slap on the wrist is morally wrong and it sends the wrong message! If people cannot drink responsibly, then they need to be put somewhere, where the choice will no longer be theirs to make for quite some time! When you play, you should have to pay.

Only a .29?? I had a .51 when I was taken to the ER. AND YES I AM STILL ALIVE AND 118 Days Sober!!!! I wonder if the train wrecks on Celebrity Rehab/Sober House would take him in??? Just my observation and no I am not exaggerating my story.
