ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

St. Louis Alderman John Collins-Muhammad (21st Ward) was arrested Monday afternoon after he was involved in an accident, police say.

According to police, Collins-Muhammad was driving northbound on North Sarah when his car struck the rear of a vehicle stopped at a stop sign.

During the investigation, police say a computer inquiry revealed the alderman had five active St. Louis city bench warrants and one fugitive warrant from Jefferson City.

Police arrested Collins-Muhammad for his outstanding warrants and issued citations for failing to display proof of insurance, following another vehicle too close and driving with a suspended license.

There were no reported injuries associated with the accident.

In a Facebook post, Collins-Muhammad responded by saying he takes ownership of not 'dealing wisely of his past problems'.
