Alex Collins was arrested for possession of marijuana, possession with intent to spread, and with a gun in a vehicle
Newly released camera images of the bodycam show an officer who easily discovers a pot of marijuana and a revolver in the former Baltimore Ravens, which crashed the crashed Corvette by Alex Collins in March.
Collins, who was then 24, was arrested for possession of marijuana, possession with the intention of distributing it and having a gun in a vehicle after a car accident that occurred within a mile of the team's training facility in Owings Mills, Maryland.
He has since been sentenced to 18 months without supervision.
Bodycam footage shows the officer who discovers a large pot of marijuana in a plastic bag and a hand gun hidden along the driver's seat. Collins apparently made no attempt to hide either item, despite the sufficient time to do this.
Now 25, Collins was released by the Ravens shortly thereafter and has not signed with another NFL team since. He is faced with a suspension of three weeks if and when he returns to the competition.

After he quietly explained a ticket to Alex Collins (photo), the officer became more direct: & # 39; How much marijuana do you have in the car? Just be honest with me because I can smell it. & # 39;

After finding marijuana easily, the officer walked over to the driver's side and discovered a gun
Initially, the interaction between Collins and the answering officer seemed routine. The Florida resident explained that his car was slipping in the snow and that he had been waiting for a tow truck for over an hour.
& # 39; I slipped on the road, & # 39; he said to the officer. & # 39; The road was covered with snow. & # 39;
The officer returned to his car to write Collins a ticket for expired tags.
But after he calmly explained the ticket to Collins, the officer suddenly became more direct.
& # 39; How much marijuana do you have in the car? & # 39; the officer asked an astonished Collins. & # 39; Just be honest with me because I can smell it. & # 39;
Collins explained that it was not his marijuana, but rather that it belonged to his friend & # 39; T.J. & # 39; who had walked home from the crash site.
That friend has since been identified as Tykheem Jaquon Deundrea Dunaway, 28, but Collins told the officer that he only knew him as T.J.
The car was then dragged out of the brush and shortly thereafter the officer found the marijuana on the passenger seat before he walked around the car and discovered the gun beside the driver's seat.
Collins & friend has since been identified as Tykheem Jaquon Deundrea Dunaway, 28. Dunaway was eventually charged with controlled possession of substances with the intention of spreading and possession of marijuana
& # 39; Hands behind your back, & # 39; Collins then said by the officer.
Dunaway, who had returned to the crash site, was asked by the officer about the marijuana.
& # 39; That marijuana was on the passenger side, & # 39; he said, asking later, & whose marijuana is it? & # 39;
Dunaway claimed he didn't know he was in the car until they crashed, but offered to take the marijuana while Collins waited for a tow truck.
According to Dunaway, Collins fell.
Dunaway was accused of possession of controlled substances with the intention of spreading marijuana and holding more than 10 grams.
The video ends with the officer who is packing the marijuana and the revolver at the back of his truck.
Collins had a deal for a year at the time of his release. He earned just over $ 1 million in his three-year career, despite the fact that he rushed to an impressive 973 yards and six touchdowns in 2017.
