    Times-Picayune: Off-duty NOPD officer suspended after DWI arrest in Gretna (Oct 22 2013)

    According to Jefferson Parish court records, Collins, a Harvey resident, was arrested in 2007, the year before he joined NOPD, on charges of resisting an officer, disturbing the peace and battery of a police officer. For the disturbing the peace charge, Collins was placed on active probation after pleading under a provision that allows people arrested on certain charges to plead guilty but have the conviction set aside and sentence suspended. The other charges were dismissed by prosecutors, records show.
