Ruggs is accused of driving a Chevrolet Corvette, and the crash reportedly happened at 3:39 am local time.

He allegedly showed signs of impairment when police arrived, according to the same report. The Raiders released a statement confirming Ruggs was involved.

As always, Ruggs has every right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. That’s our system here and we should all be thankful for it.

Having said that, this is an incredibly serious situation and Ruggs could potentially be facing the end of his NFL career if he’s convicted.

At the very least, he will be hit with a massive suspension if proven guilty.

This whole situation is absolutely tragic and it’s a blunt reminder of what can happen when you allegedly drive under the influence.

Let’s hope the police can get to the bottom of what happened. Keep checking back for more updates as we have them.
