Police InvestigationEdit

Collins was at the residence of teammate Jerome Simpson when police searched Simpson's home. Both were also questioned by the police. No arrests have been made yet.[1] Collins released the following statement through his attorney Robert Lotz after the investigation began:

"Unfortunately, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, I do want to take this opportunity to let my fans, friends and family know that I had no part in the reported activities at Jerome’s home. I have done nothing wrong and I have not been charged with doing anything wrong. So far as I know, I am no longer a part of any investigation."

The prosecutor involved in the case has said Collins will not face any charges.[2]
