Lawyers for ex-Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs say they want the player’s blood-alcohol levels excluded from his prosecution because, they claim, police obtained the evidence improperly.
Ruggs, who faces years behind bars if convicted of a drunk driving accident that killed a woman in Los Vegas in 2021, was arrested last November for allegedly driving drunk at 156 mph, smashing into a woman, killing her when her car burst into an instant inferno.
The ex-player was quickly sent to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries giving police no time to conduct a field sobriety test. As a result, the police soon took out a warrant to obtain his blood-alcohol levels.
