Henry Ruggs was in court on Monday morning after he was ordered last week to make a physical appearance in court for missing the required test.
Judge Suzan Baucum did not revoke the former Las Vegas Raiders player and he will remain on house arrest after missing a breathalyzer test but he will be monitored for alcohol around the clock. Ruggs was required to test four times a day. Missing the test violated one of the terms of his release on bail.
He is now required to wear an ankle bracelet that monitors him for alcohol 24 hours a day. Judge Baucum said she is comfortable with that device and it replaces the breathalyzer requirement.
Ruggs’ attorney David Chesnoff told Judge Baucum that Ruggs is not a danger to the community.
As you know, Ruggs is accused of driving drunk and causing a deadly crash earlier this month where police stated he was speeding at 156 mph seconds before he rear-ended Tina Tintor’s car, causing it to catch fire, killing her and her dog.
Ruggs faces charges of DUI resulting in death and reckless driving resulting in death in connection with the crash.
