Gary Collins Arrest Warrant for Hit-and-Run

11/3/2010 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Collins -- a former host of the Miss America pageant and "Hour Magazine" -- was allegedly involved in yet another alcohol-related car accident -- and now he's under investigation for hit-and-run ... TMZ has learned.

Gary Collins 2007 man killed:
Law enforcement sources in Jackson, Mississippi tell us cops are getting a warrant for Gary's arrest, following an accident last night in which he allegedly struck another car, injuring a woman and her child.

We're told the woman told cops Gary -- who was going around 40 MPH -- got out of his car "clearly intoxicated," threw his hands up in the air and asked, "What are we waiting for?"  The woman said the cops were on the way, but Gary then beat a hasty retreat.

Gary has had driving issues before.  He's been arrested three times for DUI over the last 10 years.  He beat the rap once and was convicted twice.

In the most serious case, a man died after Gary was driving drunk in 2007.  Cops determined the accident was not Gary's fault, but he pled no contest and served 4 days in jail.

But the most bizarre ... Gary pled no contest after driving a motor home with a .29 blood alcohol level.

Calls to Gary's reps have not been returned.

geez. But can they get him for DUI since it's too late to do
a test? Probably only for hit and run? Wow, he needs
to be taken off the road permanantly.

He needs serious jail time. Before he goes into jail, he can spend some time getting those dentures whitened.

....hey Judge, what are you waiting for? The guy was wasted driving a huge RV! He is a menace. Take his license. One guy died in a wreck, although it wasn't his fault? Maybe he could have dodged the wreck if he had been sober. I am sick of this entitled idiot. Sober up, God damn you.

you know this is just pathetic.... he has had EVERY opportunity and yet he continues to abuse. This man needs to be made an example because something is seriously wrong..with him as well as the system that allows him to continue. Permanent liscense loss and jail time. Sad...but true. (and this is coming from someone who also had a dui)

That after he injured a woman and child in an accident, he is so wasted he throws his arms in the air and demands, "what are we waiting for?" just shows what a selfish man he is. Hope she sues and gets his wife's collection of bad wigs.
