Stephen A. addressed the situation on a recent episode of “First Take,” and he shared some thoughts about driving under the influence everyone should hear. Listen to his full comments below.
I agree with everything Stephen A. Smith had to say in reaction to Ruggs allegedly crashing his car and killing an innocent woman.
There is no excuse to ever get behind the wheel while intoxicated. It’s simply unacceptable, and I don’t want to hear anyone say otherwise.
When you drink and drive, you’re selfishly putting everyone at risk.
Henry Ruggs’ horrific situation is a blunt reminder that drunk driver is never okay.
NEVER get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Call an Uber, call friend, call a taxi or sleep in your car.

Now, Ruggs’ entire life has changed because of an alleged decision in his early-20s. It’s beyond tragic for so many different reasons.
I beg everyone reading this to never drink and drive. It’s not worth it.
