Collins was cited for the misdemeanor Nov. 2 after his Jeep rear-ended a car at a stoplight in Jackson. Police say he exchanged information with the other driver but left before authorities arrived. Police later went to his house and gave him the ticket.

Collins attorney, Tom Royals, has said the charge was reasonable.

Collins is married to former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley. He starred in the 1970s series "The Sixth Sense" and has made appearances on such series as "JAG," "Yes, Dear" and "The Young and the Restless."

Collins hosted the talk show "Hour Magazine" in the 1980s, and won a daytime Emmy for it in 1983.
