NFL’S ALEX COLLINS ARREST VIDEO SHOWS JUG OF WEED & GUN … In Crashed Corvette
Alex Collins had a massive jug of weed and a gun on the floorboards of his crashed Corvette … and police video obtained by TMZ Sports shows cops making the shocking find and arresting the NFL RB for it.
Collins skidded off the road at around 4:30 a.m. near the Baltimore Ravens’ practice facility in Owings Mills, Maryland when he was a member of the team back in March 2019.
In video we obtained … you can see a cop pulling up to the scene shortly after the crash — and it’s pretty wild.
Collins’ pricey ride — which looks like the Batmobile — is rammed against some trees and stuck in a snowy ditch … and Collins appears to be asleep when the officer opens the passenger door.
Collins explains to the cop he had crashed earlier in the morning and was waiting for a tow … but after Alex had some issues with expired tags, things got dicey for the 25-year-old.
The cop hits him with a ticket, but explains he smells a strong odor of marijuana from the car as well … and asks him straight-up how much weed he has in the vehicle.
The running back claims he doesn’t know … saying it belonged to his buddy, Tykheem “TJ” Dunaway, who was a passenger in the car earlier but had walked home instead of sticking around.
TJ eventually showed back up to the scene … and after the cop discovered the jug of weed and a firearm in the car — he put Collins in cuffs and questioned TJ.
TJ told the cop the weed definitely belonged to Collins … saying, “It’s his. I didn’t know it was in the car until it crashed because we were coming from a party.”
Eventually, both dudes were arrested for possession of the weed … while Collins was also booked for having a handgun in his vehicle.
Collins fought the case in court for months … but in October, he agreed to a plea deal in which he pled guilty to two misdemeanor charges of possession of a handgun and possession of weed.
In exchange, Collins received probation and a fine … and had his felony charges dropped.
Collins — who was cut by the Ravens immediately after the arrest — is still looking for a team this season … despite being hit with a 3-game suspension by the NFL over the incident.
The former Seattle Seahawks fifth-round pick has 1,509 rushing yards and 14 rushing TDs in his 3-year NFL career.
