JACKSON, MISS. (AP) - Police say they arrested former TV host and actor Gary Collins and charged him with a felony for allegedly leaving a restaurant without paying his $59.35 tab.

Rodney McGilvary, assistant chief of the Biloxi police department, confirmed that Collins was arrested Tuesday. He said Collins was being held early Wednesday on a $5,000 bond in a detention center in Gulfport.

McGilvary says he isn’t sure if Collins has a lawyer.

In November, Collins was charged with a misdemeanor for leaving the scene of a minor auto accident in Jackson. He was fined $500. The attorney who represented him in that case didn’t immediately respond Wednesday to a message left by The Associated Press.

Collins is married to Mary Anne Mobley, a former Miss America from Mississippi.
