The former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver is on house arrest as he awaits a preliminary hearing on two felony charges of driving under the influence causing death or serious injury, two felony charges of reckless driving and a misdemeanor weapon charge.

According to police, Ruggs’ blood alcohol content was 0.16% on the night of the crash, twice the legal limit in Nevada. They also say they found a loaded handgun in the wreckage of his car.
