She will face hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke next month.Her charges come after she was involved in a domestic incident outside a gas station on South Chancery Street with a man she knew.“They got in an argument over Ms. Collins riding other males around in his vehicle,” said McMinnville policewoman Rachel Nichols, noting an off-duty officer, who was inside the store, saw Collins initiate the physical confrontation by pushing the man she was arguing with. Nichols tried to ease the situation.“I went to grab her by the arm and she pushed away,” Nichols swore in her warrant against the woman, noting she had to take the suspect to the ground but Collins kept resisting.
