Former Las Vegas Raider wide receiver Henry Ruggs III appeared yesterday morning in Las Vegas Justice Court before Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure for his initial hearing stemming from the car crash that Ruggs was involved in early Tuesday morning that killed a woman.

Ruggs made his court appearance in a wheelchair and wearing a neck brace. After the hearing during which Bonaventure was told that Ruggs was traveling at 156 mph in his Corvette a few seconds before slamming into the rear of a Toyota, Bonaventure ordered Ruggs held on $150,000 bond with strict electronic monitoring if released. Ruggs was released and returned to his Las Vegas home.

He was required to not drive, not consume drugs or alcohol, and had to surrender his passport.

Ruggs is facing charges of reckless driving and DUI resulting in death and may face other charges stemming from injuries suffered by his girlfriend who was a passenger in Ruggs’ car at the time of the crash. He could face up to 20 years in prison.

The victim of the crash has been identified as 23 year old Tina Tintor of Las Vegas.
