Anne Arundel County Police Sgt. Kenneth Collier has been suspended without pay following his arrest.

A longtime Maryland police officer was suspended without pay after allegedly rear-ending another vehicle while driving drunk and then fighting officers who arrived at the scene.

Sgt. Kenneth Collier of the Anne Arundel County Police Department was arrested Saturday after officers responded to an accident in Crofton.

“Through their investigation officers believed Collier was under the influence of alcohol,” police said in a statement. “When officers initiated the arrest for the suspected DWI, Collier resisted arrest and assaulted officers on the scene.”

Police say Collier, a 21-year veteran of the department, was off-duty when he rear-ended another vehicle with his truck.

Collier has been charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, second-degree assault, driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. He has been suspended with pay pending the results of an investigation into the accident, in which no one was injured.

Oregon State Police stopped the Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex’s brother at 1:33 a.m. early Friday morning.

According to the police report, Markle Jr., 52, who shares a father with the Duchess, “was visibly intoxicated and further impairment was observed” during the traffic stop.

Markle Jr.’s vehicle was towed and he was taken to detox, where he was tested and found to have a blood alcohol level of .11 percent.

This isn’t Markle Jr.’s first brush with the law. Last January, he was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon and menacing stemming from an incident where put a gun to his girlfriend’s head.

Charges were later dropped when the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office was “unable to locate essential victim.”

Duchess Markle is not close to her Oregon family. Before her wedding to the former Prince Harry, now His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, her brother publicly tried to get the prince to cancel the nuptials, calling his sister a “jaded, shallow, conceited woman that will make a joke of you and the royal family heritage.”

Joseph was also required to pay $1,855 in fees and was instructed to complete a “Victim Impact Panel” that was held on September 27, 2018.

Five years earlier on December 31, 2013, Joseph was arrested again for driving with a suspended license. He pled guilty to the charges and was placed in the “Washington County Community Corrections/State of Oregon Corrections Department for a period of three (3) years.”

Biggest mistake of my life was choosing to try it. Cause after that, i tried it again. Then again. And again. And again. I realized at the age of 15 i had a drug problem which i was at that point taking about 4 to 5 Xanax pills a day. It made forget, not feel, not care, not friendly, not me. Almost killed me, almost killed my relationship with my family, almost destroyed my entire life.”
