Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier is clinging to life at this moment, the victim of a late-night shooting outside a woman’s home. Collier had been out at several night clubs with former Jaguar player Kenneth Petway. They met several women and were waiting outside one of their homes on the way to another night club, when Collier was shot at around 2:30 a.m. early Tuesday.
As Collier and Petway were sitting in an Cadillac Escalade waiting on the women (they were in a separate car), Jefferson says someone came up and started shooting.
Several bullets hit Collier. Petway, who was a passenger in the truck, was not hurt. Police do not have a motive or description of the suspect. Jefferson says he’s not sure if the women saw anything. He told us they are shocked.
I’d be shocked, too.
This isn’t the first bizarre incident involving a Jaguar offensive tackle. I’m sure most of us remember Khalif Barnes’ race-tinged ramblings from the back of a police car after a drunk driving arrest. He famously called the officer a “KKK Devil” which only hastened his swift transport to be booked.
Collier himself has a previous DUI on his record (see mugshot above), but this is a whole different animal altogether, one he sadly may not survive.
