Kentucky fullback Will Thomas Collins was arrested early Friday and is now facing a variety of charges, including alcohol intoxication and criminal mischief.  

WKYT reported a police officer witnessed Collins and another individual walking down the street with a parking meter. The police report stated they attempted to flee after seeing the officer. As a result, the junior walk-on also faces charges of theft, fleeing and evading.

The outlet provided further information from the police's incident report:

"The suspects saw my vehicle and placed the parking meter down," the report says. "I activated my emergency equipment and pulled up beside them."

The officer's report says he yelled for them to stop and get down to the ground. Collins stayed and "admitted to taking the parking meter" because it was on the ground.

WKYT also passed along the player's mugshot:

No further details about the incident were immediately released.

Collins arrived to the Wildcats as a transfer from the University of Pikeville in 2013. His bio on the athletic department's official site notes he was a linebacker before moving to fullback after the transfer.

The 5'11'', 238-pound backfield member didn't register any statistics during the 2015 season. He'll be a senior when Kentucky returns to action next fall.

He's scheduled to get arraigned Friday in Fayette District Court, according to WKTY. No word on what type of punishment he could face as a result of the alleged incident was immediately announced.
