In light of a delayed preliminary hearing of evidence regarding the fatal car crash involving former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld are requesting to throw away evidence that shows Ruggs had a blood-alcohol level that was double the legal limit while operating a vehicle speeding 156 mph.

The two lawyers have claimed that the police did not have a legal reason to ask a judge to authorize a warrant for their client’s blood. “The mere fact of Mr. Ruggs’s involvement in a fatal vehicle collision does not, in itself, give rise to probable cause to believe he was driving under the influence of alcohol.”
