Gary Collins was 74 when he passed away this morning.
Passing away around 1am, the legendary actor and host died of natural causes at Biloxi Regional Medical Center.
He and his wife, former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley, just separated last year. So sad…

Yikes! He's got some issues!
Actor Gary Collins has been arrested for allegedly defrauding an innkeeper in Biloxi, Mississippi on Tuesday.
The former Miss America/"Hour Magazine" host, who has been arrested three times and has two DUIs under his belt, dined at Jazzeppi's Restaurant and left without paying his $59.35 bill. Employees stopped him to let him know that he did not pay, but Collins ignored their warning. They even followed him out to the parking lot.
Unfortunately for the actor, refusing to pay a restaurant bill over $25 in Mississippi is a felony. Collins is being held on $5,000 bail.
All this mess for the $40 chef's steak special and some booze!

He's in a heap of trouble!
Last night, police responded to a hit-and-run called in Jackson, Mississippi. When the cops arrived, a mother told them that a man, who was "clearly intoxicated" slammed into her car with she and her baby inside. When he got out to talk to her, he screamed, "What are you waiting for?" before getting back into the car and speeding off.
The man has been identified as former host of the Miss America pageant, Gary Collins, who has already been arrested three times for DUIS. (One time, he was driving a motor home with a .29 blood alcohol level! Whoa!)
Gary has yet to turn himself in and the police have yet to catch up with him. He'll have a lot to answer for!
