Las Vegas Police Release Henry Ruggs’ Booking Photo After Driving 156-MPH & Killing Woman & Her Dog (PIC)
Henry Ruggs was traveling an astounding 156 MPH when he hit a young woman so hard that it would trap her and her dog in a vehicle that bursts into flames. Clark County firefighters arrived on the scene and extinguished the fire, but it was way too late to save her or the dog.
His booking photo has since been released.
The fiery crash involved two cars; a Toyota Rav4 and a Chevrolet Corvette, which Ruggs was driving, police said. Ruggs and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Rudy Washington, were seriously injured. Police listed her name as Kiara Je’nai Kilgo-Washington, who is also 22-years-old.
On Wednesday, he made his first court appearance. He faces charges of DUI of alcohol and/or controlled or prohibited substance, resulting in substantial bodily harm; and reckless driving with death or substantial bodily harm.
Ruggs was the Raiders’ first pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He played for the University of Alabama. Washington attends Paine College in Augusta, Georgia, where she plays on the volleyball team.
“On behalf of our client Henry Ruggs III, we are conducting our own investigation as of this writing and ask everyone to reserve judgement until all the facts are gathered,” Ruggs’ attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld said in a statement Tuesday.
