Gary Collins -- Wanted Man

11/30/2010 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Collins is in a heap of trouble -- we've learned there's a warrant out for his arrest in the wake of his latest vehicular misstep in Mississippi ... and prosecutors are now gunning to revoke his probation.

Gary Collins DUI Arrest Warrent

On November 4, Collins was supposed to show up in court in L.A. for a probation progress report in connection with his 2007 DUI.  According to court records -- he failed to appear, so the judge issued a $100,000 arrest warrant.

Ironically, had Collins shown up in court on November 4 for his progress report, the L.A. judge would have terminated his probation.

Collins is a 2-time DUI offender.  As for his most recent run-in with the law, one of the passengers in the car he allegedly hit in Mississippi says he smelled alcohol on Collins' breath, however, cops only charged him with hit and run.  That case is pending.

Rick Schmidt, Supervisor for the Van Nuys Branch of the City Attorney's Office, tells TMZ his office will now seek to revoke Collins' probation in the 2007 DUI  ... which could land him in jail.

Calls to Collins' lawyer were not returned.

Probation is a racket!! Do your time and get out of the cycle b/c its sole purpose is to keep you under government control. take a hint from Jim Brown who chose to do his time rather than be subjected to the probation system.

@Mike L,

Depends on how old you are. If you are in your younger than late 20s you probably won't know him. He was a popular TV show host in the 80s (maybe even the 70s?) to the early 90s. I remember my parents watching him when I was a kid. Nowadays he's the epitome of "What ever happened to?"

He's got a disease. My prayers go out for him.

He's depending on alcohol, (a cunning, baffling and powerful drink) to get him through whatever it is that he isn't addressing. He's in denial, it seems to me.
And he needs AA.
AA is full of paradoxes. For example, if he wants to win the war, he has to surrender to a higher power.
If he wants to get love, he has to give his love away.
He'll be best friends with people he wouldn't even want to know outside of AA, (initially).Etc! Etc!
Here's wishing you recovery, Mr. Collins!

The only thing this phony will be remembered for is that moronic infomercial he does with Russ Dalbey about the cash flow business. Two scammers together peddling ripoff junk for suckers. It is easy to see why he drinks heavily, when your whole life comes down to selling a huge scam, nonsense money making opportunity to thousands of fools.
