Collins swerved off-road at around 4:30 a.m. near the Baltimore Ravens practice facility in Owings Mills when he was a player on the team last March.
The video shows a cop pulling up to the scene shortly afterward, and shows the cop opening Collins’ passenger door.
Collins explains that he had crashed earlier in the morning and was waiting for a tow, and after the cop gave him a ticket for expired tags- the cop asks him how much marijuana he has in the car.
The cop said he could smell it in the car, and Collins said it wasn’t his.
“That’s not the question I asked,” the cop said, “How much you got in there?”
Collins claimed he didn’t know and said it belonged to his buddy, Tykheem “TJ” Dunaway, who was in the car earlier but had walked home instead of waiting for the tow with Collins.
Dunaway eventually comes back, and after the officer searched the vehicle and found the handgun on the floor of the passenger seat and the marijuana.
Both Collins and Dunaway were arrested for possession of marijuana, and Collins was also booked for having a handgun in his vehicle.
Dunaway claimed the marijuana definitely wasn’t his and said he had asked Collins if he wanted him to take it for him after they had crashed, but Collins had said no.
Collins fought the charges for months, but eventually agreed to a plea deal in October to two misdemeanor charges of possession of a handgun and possession of marijuana.
He received probation and a fine and his felony charges were dropped. He was cut from the Ravens immediately after the arrest, and is still looking for a team this season.
