OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins was arrested Friday morning after a car accident about a kilometer from the sports center.
Chad Steele, spokesman for the Ravens, said his team had spoken to the police and was aware of the situation.
Collins' car crashed into a tree at Owings Mills around 6:48 am, according to police. The charges against Collins should be announced Friday afternoon.
Collins, 24, is ranked 11th in the NFL rushing in 2017 with 973 yards and has attracted national attention for his Irish dance. Last season, he had a foot injury and lack of explosiveness, lost the rookie position against rookie Gues Edwards and finished the last five games on the injured reserve.
There was no guarantee that Collins would return to the Ravens before his arrest. He is a restricted free agent and may not be paid by Baltimore.
