The Placer County (California) Sheriff’s Office said in a release on Tuesday they arrested Collison midday Monday after deputies found the woman visibly injured.
The office said Collison, 28, was booked at the Placer County jail in Auburn. He was charged with one count of corporal injury on a spouse and two misdemeanor bench warrants for driving on a suspended license. He was released on $55,000 bail hours after his arrest and is due back in court July 11.

Bobby Portis Apologizes to Bulls for Mirotic Fight
Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
