Former TV host and actor Gary Collins was arrested and charged with a felony for allegedly trying to skip out on a $59.35 restaurant bill, said police.

Biloxi police said Collins was arrested on Tuesday and being held early Wednesday on a $5,000 bond in a detention center in Gulfport.

It wasn't immediately clear if Collins had a lawyer.

In November, Collins left a scene of a minor auto accident in Jackson and was charged with a misdemeanor and fined $500.

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