Arizona Cardinal rookie first round linebacker, Zaven Collins, has been arrested and booked for reckless driving. The following is from TMZ:
Arizona Cardinals linebacker Zaven Collins — a 1st-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft — was arrested Sunday night after cops say he was driving recklessly, TMZ Sports has confirmed.
The 22-year-old — who was taken by the Cards with the #16 overall pick — was stopped by officers in AZ after cops say he was speeding and driving dangerously.
We’re working on further details regarding the incident ... but a jail official tells us Collins was booked Sunday night and released a short time later.
We’ve reached out to Collins’ reps, the Cardinals and the NFL for comment ... but so far, no word back yet.
