Henry Ruggs career is likely over.
Late Tuesday night, he was released by the Raiders.
The now former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) resulting in a death after his car rear-ended another car and left one person dead, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
The 22-year-old was identified as the driver of the Chevrolet that collided with the rear of a Toyota that caused it to burst into flames and kill a woman and her dog.
Ruggs faces one count of a DUI resulting in substantial bodily harm and one count of reckless driving, according to the Clark County Detention Center website.
Ruggs is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, according to his attorney.
David Chesnoff, Ruggs’ lawyer, released a statement:
“On behalf of our client Henry Ruggs III we are conducting our own investigation as of this writing and ask everyone to reserve judgment until all the facts are gathered,” the statement read.
