Ex-Raven Alex Collins, friend turn on each other after jumbo jug of pot, gun found in car

New York Post Sports 1 month ago

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins denied to cops that an oversized jug of marijuana in his crashed Corvette belonged to him, insisting that it belonged to a friend, new video shows.

Collins, 25, was arrested in March after crashing into a snowy ditch near the Ravens’ practice facility in Owings Mills, Maryland, where he told police he waited for 90 minutes for a tow truck after sliding off the road, according to the footage obtained by TMZ.

An officer told Collins that he’d be getting a $70 ticket for expired tags before flatly asking the running back how much marijuana he had in his car.

“Just be honest with me, because I’m going to search it, because I can smell it,” the officer said.

“Um, it’s not mine,” Collins said.

“That’s not the question I asked,” the cop continued. “How much you got in there?”

“I have no idea,” Collins said before mentioning that his friend, Tykheem “TJ” Dunaway, walked off to his house after the crash.

Collins told the officer that Dunaway was his “homeboy,” but said he only knew him as TJ.

Collins and Dunaway are then seen talking with the officer as he explains to the ex-NFLer – clad in a purple “Charm City” hoodie – that he would be ticketed for the unregistered vehicle.

“I’m going to take a look in the car, all right?” the cop continued. “I told you why already, OK? It is what it is. Like I said, [I’ll] treat you no different than anybody else.”

The officer then found the jumbo jug of pot beneath a coat on the passenger side floorboard of Collins’ ride, along with a handgun beneath the steering wheel. Both Collins and Dunaway were then put in handcuffs, video shows.

Dunaway later told the officer that the marijuana wasn’t his, saying he offered to take responsibility for the drugs, according to the footage.

“I didn’t know that it was in the car until he crashed because we was coming from a party,” Dunaway said, which Collins protested.

Collins, who was cut by the Ravens hours after the incident, received probation and a fine last month under a plea in connection to the marijuana and handgun possession charges. Felony charges against the former NFL back were dropped in exchange for the guilty pleas, TMZ Sports reports.

Collins has yet to sign with another team. The NFL has suspended him for three games for his arrest, sources told the NFL Network on Friday.
