On Tuesday, it was ruled by a Las Vegas judge that blood alcohol tests are permitted as evidence regarding former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III. Ruggs faces multiple felonies, including driving under the influence resulting in death and reckless driving, after being involved in a car crash that resulted in the death of 23-year-old Tina Tintor & her dog back in November. Ruggs, who reportedly refused to take a field sobriety test, was accused of driving 156 mph while drunk.

“There’s obvious time constraints in applying for a search warrant for a blood draw. Under the totality of the circumstances, there is more than sufficient evidence for a finding of probable cause for the issuance of the search warrant in this case.” Ann Zimmerman, Justice of the Peace, stated.
