In a video released by TMZ, the former Las Vegas Raiders receiver could be seen sobbing on the ground as the woman’s car was engulfed by flames. The woman near him begged for help as she claimed he was slipping in and out of consciousness.
You can watch the video below, but be warned it’s difficult to sit through.
As I’ve said too many times to count at this point, this entire situation is beyond tragic. Ruggs had his life in front of him and it’s all gone if he’s convicted.
If he gets convicted of felony DUI resulting in death, returning to the NFL will be the least of his concerns. That much I can promise you.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Eric Bauman said in court today that former Raiders’ WR Henry Ruggs was traveling at 156 MPH before the car crash that left a 23-year-old woman dead, and Ruggs’ blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

One life is lost and another life faces a very dark future all because he allegedly chose to drink and drive. It’s just not worth it, folks. It’s just not worth it.
