This time, he was the one in the blinking lights.

Gary Collins, best known for hosting the TV show, “The New Hollywood Squares,” was charged with DUI Oct. 29, two weeks after being involved in an accident in the San Fernando Valley. While driving his Ford Explorer, Collins was struck by another vehicle. When police smelled alcohol on Collins, they conducted field sobriety tests on the TV actor. A spokesman for the L.A. City Attorney’s Office said Collins was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving with a BAC level above the state legal limit of .08. If convicted, Collins, 69, faces up to six months imprisonment and a $1,000 fine when he faces arraignment Nov. 16. Collins was unharmed but the 89-year-old driver of the other vehicle was hospitalized with injuries. Collins has also appeared on the TV series "Yes, Dear" and "JAG," as well as the soap opera "The Young and the Restless." He also has appeared on the "Circus of the Stars."
