Henry Ruggs Ordered Back To Las Vegas Court After Missed Alcohol Test!
A Las Vegas judge has ordered Henry Ruggs III to appear in court Monday after learning he missed a required alcohol test while on house arrest following a fatal crash earlier this month.
CelebnSports247.com reports that the former Raiders wide receiver’s lawyers told Judge Suzan Baucum that he “self-tested” negative shortly after missing a call for a breath test last weekend.
According to reports:
A note posted later in the court record shows that Ruggs missed a test at 4:41 p.m. Saturday and that he completed “a client-initiated remote breath test” at 6:28 p.m.
Henry Ruggs is currently free on $150,000 bail and could face a return to jail. He is required to have four-times-a-day alcohol checks while facing felony DUI charges that carry mandatory prison time.
Ruggs was released from the Vegas Raiders following the news of his DUI car accident. Ruggs was selected by them in the 2020 NFL draft from Alabama, where he helped the Crimson Tide win the 2017 NCAA championship.
A judge who set his bail at $150,000 warned Ruggs directly that if he didn’t comply with release restrictions, he faced re-arrest.
He is currently under home confinement and is also required to respond to a telephone or text signal by blowing into a device that checks his blood alcohol content.
Ruggs was formally charged with multiple felonies after he accidentally killed Tina Tintor and her dog in the fiery car crash. His blood alcohol content after the crash was 0.16%, twice the legal limit for drivers in Nevada.
