Raiders have released Ruggs from team; killed Tina Tintor and her dog
“Mr. Ruggs is no different than anybody else. Whether you’re an athlete. Whether you’re a police officer visiting from out of state. Whether it’s you, Kyle. I don’t care. Like I said before, it’s about choices, and if somebody chooses to drive while under the influence and drive in excess of 150 miles an hour, we’re going to seek justice,” said Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson.
Prosecutor Eric Bauman said Ruggs was traveling at 156 mph about 2 seconds before the crash. He was at 127 mph when airbags deployed.

from LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL:
A Metropolitan Police Department report released Wednesday identified the woman killed in the crash as 23-year-old Tina Tintor.
Ruggs was “argumentative and uncooperative” with police and other first responders, Bauman said. According to Ruggs’ arrest report, he refused to participate in a field sobriety test, and instead, two blood draws were taken at the hospital after investigators obtained a search warrant.
The first blood draw was taken at 5:26 a.m., according to police reports released Wednesday afternoon.
While at the hospital, Ruggs yelled at officers and attempted to tear IVs out of his arm, one report said. When an officer tried speaking with Ruggs, he started yelling “to get him out of here,” an officer wrote in the report.
Ruggs told the officer he did not remember what happened and that he was heading home before the crash. MORE
