LOS ANGELES California

Dec. 6 2007

A Los Angeles judge Thursday sentenced Gary Collins to 96 hours in jail after the TV personality pleaded no contest to driving under the influence.

Collins was arrested in October after a car accident involving an 89-year-old motorist. The former "The New Hollywood Squares" host entered rehab shortly after the incident.

Other terms of Collins' sentence include four years of probation, a $500 fine and 100 hours of community service.

Collins also must pay restitution to the victims, enroll in an 18-month alcohol-education program and attend 26 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

The judge told Collins he could serve his sentence at any city jail, but his stay would be at his own expense.
