Raiders Fans React To NFL News Surrounding Henry Ruggs III

A major development surrounding former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III surfaced today. NFL fans reacted to this important decision by a judge in the disgraced receiver’s trial.

The story was originally written by Anthony Olivieri of ESPN, the worldwide media outlet that broke the story earlier today regarding the former NFL receiver. Basically, the Las Vegas judge has decided that blood alcohol test results from the tragic car accident will be allowed as evidence. This is huge. In many ways, this could possibly hurt Ruggs’ defense.

Ruggs’ attorney, David Chesnoff, commented the following on the ruling:

“Nobody has mentioned so far that Mr. Ruggs was seriously injured in this accident and transported to the hospital, so he would have been unable to submit to field sobriety tests.”

Regardless of how you feel about the lawyer’s words, he’s doing what’s best for his client. He went on to comment that police on the scene “knew they didn’t have enough evidence for probable cause, that involvement in the fiery crash wasn’t enough.”

As for Ruggs, he awaits a preliminary hearing on September 7th.

“And that’s what’s wrong, It does matter, and it has to matter because, if it doesn’t matter, then we are in lawless society.”

How did fans react to this development surrounding Henry Ruggs III?

ESPN dropped the story earlier today on Twitter as well, as you can imagine, fans had plenty to say.
