McCollum was driving a white Ferrari at the time.

The 23-year-old, who is originally from Mableton, was taken to the Atlanta City Jail and his Ferrari was given to a friend.


He was charged with reckless driving and speeding in excess of maximum limits.

The arrest comes just months after McCollum crashed a red Ferrari on the Downtown Connector in June.

Witnesses reported that speed and wet roads were a factor in that crash.

The crash was near the same spot where McCollum was pulled over last week.
