Authorities say they arrested actor and TV host Gary Collins on suspicion of drunken driving.

According to an arrest report, deputies in the coastal county of Santa Barbara pulled Collins over Saturday evening after noticing him driving a motor home erratically. The 70-year-old was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after failing a field sobriety test. He was later released on $25,000 bail.

The arrest comes roughly 13 months after Collins pleaded no contest to driving under the influence and served a four day jail in sentence in jail in a suburb of Los Angeles.

Collins is a former host of the "Miss America Pageant" and has appeared in numerous episodes of TV series such as "The Young and the Restless" and "JAG."
