Gary Collins supersized his ride and now a judge might supersize his punishment. 

The former Hour Magazine host is facing DUI charges stemming from his Jan. 31 arrest in Montecito, Calif., for allegedly being behind the wheel of a motor home while intoxicated, his third DUI bust this decade and second in the last two years.

Police said his blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest was 0.29, more than three times the legal limit.

The veteran TV personality was charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or above. Arraignment has been set for March 2 and jail time is almost certain if he's convicted in light of his record.

Collins was sentenced to four years' probation and spent four days in a Glendale, Calif., jail in January 2008 after copping to drunken driving charges. He was found not guilty of DUI in 2002 in Mississippi.
