Ruggs lawyers: Witness says firefighting slow in fatal crash


Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Henry Ruggs’ lawyers are telling a judge they found a witness who says firefighters were slow to extinguish a vehicle fire sparked by a deadly crash that authorities blame on the former Raiders wide receiver. Prosecutors allege Ruggs was driving drunk at speeds up to 156 mph before crashing. Defense attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld filed documents Wednesday seeking Clark County Fire Department records about the pre-dawn Nov. 2 crash and fire. The Raiders released Ruggs. Team owner Mark Davis was seen at Tina Tintor’s funeral Thursday at a Serbian Orthodox church. Ruggs is on house arrest with strict conditions.
