A Cessna 650, N700RR, collided with a cement pad while taxiing back to the taxiway in the grass, collapsing the nose gear. The flight originated from Morristown, New Jersey, about 2 hours 15 minutes before the accident.
The pilot-in-command stated that after landing the airplane started to weather vane while transitioning to a taxiway. Nosewheel steering was initiated with negative results. Full power was applied on the thrust reversers and the airplane departed the taxiway and came to a stop in the grass. The pilot-in-command evaluated the situation and started to taxi forward. The airplane rolled forward about 10 to 15 feet and the nose gear collapsed.
Examination of the airplane revealed the left hand main gear assembly trailing link connectors, antiskid transducers were crossed, and responded opposite of how they should have operated.

Probable Cause:

The pic's improper decision to taxi the airplane off the taxiway. Contributing to the accident was the improper wiring of the anti-skid system.
