MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- Brooks Collier sits behind bars after police say he ran over his wife with his car. It happened late Saturday night at their home on Alec Drive in Middleburg.
According to this Clay County Sheriff's Office arrest report, Brooks Collier and his wife Nola were fighting at their home. Then Collier tried to leave in his pickup. Nola reportedly opened the driver's side door to try to stop her husband. He started backing out of the driveway. She wasn't able to move out of the way and was hit by the truck. She was killed.
A deputy responding to the incident, spotted Collier's truck driving down Blanding Boulevard. He followed him, pulled him over and arrested him for leaving the scene of the accident.
Action News has learned this isn't the first time Collier had a run-in with the law. In fact there is a page and a half of calls made to the Collier's home in the past nine years.
Suicide threats, civil disputes and disturbances are just a few items on that list. This is also his second arrest. According to Clerk of Court documents we obtained, Collier pleaded guilty in 2009 to reckless driving and resisting or obstructing an officer without violence.
Collier's bond is set for $100,000.
