Raiders Releases Ruggs; Hours Before Facing Multiple Felony Charges
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Raiders have released Henry Ruggs III just hours before the promising young receiver faced an initial court appearance on multiple felony charges after a fiery crash that left a woman dead and Ruggs and his female passenger injured. According to police, Ruggs was driving a Chevrolet Corvette that plowed into the rear of a Toyota Rav4 on a residential thoroughfare west of the Las Vegas Strip. The Toyota caught fire and the driver died. Police say the 22-year-old Ruggs “showed signs of impairment.” Court records show he faces charges of felony DUI resulting in death and reckless driving.
