Henry Ruggs III has been ordered by a judge to appear in court after he missed an alcohol test while on house arrest. The former Raiders wide receiver is facing DUI charges after his Nov. 2 car crash that killed 23 year old Tina Tintor. Ruggs has been on house arrest since posting bond after his initial court appearance.

Under the terms of his release, Ruggs is prohibited from driving and from consuming alcohol or drugs and is required to undergo alcohol testing four times a day. Ruggs was given a hand held alcohol monitoring device after it was determined he couldn’t wear a remote alcohol monitoring bracelet due to his injuries.

Ruggs failed to take his test at 4:41pm last Saturday but gave himself a test later at 6:28pm.

At a hearing on Wednesday Justice of the Peace Suzan Baucam told Ruggs’ attorney David Chesnoff that she wants to see Ruggs in court on Monday. Ruggs faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted on the DUI charges.
