SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- The Scottsdale Police Department just released body-cam video of the arrest of 22-year-old Zaven Collins, an Arizona Cardinals first-round draft pick. He was arrested on June 20 on suspicion of speeding and reckless driving.

Officers say Collins was going 76 mph in a 35-mph-zone at around 10 a.m. that Sunday. When he was stopped at a hotel near Scottsdale and Chaparral roads, he told police that he was picking up some friends from the hotel. The officer then asked Collins if he knew how fast he was going and told him his speed. He replied, "Nah, I was not going that fast." Police then explained that he was going 41 mph over the posted speed limit. Collins responded, "I have no recollection that I was that far over. I apologize." Collins continued, "I play ball here in Arizona. For the Cardinals."
