Henry Ruggs III missed a mandatory breathalyzer test, which he claims happened because missed a call.

Ruggs is charged with killing a woman and her dog during a high-speed crash in Las Vegas earlier this month.

Ruggs was required to take random breathalyzer tests as a condition of his bail. However, he missed one of the tests, which could land him back in jail.

He was back in court on Monday to explain to the judge why he missed the mandatory test.

Ruggs' lawyers submitted testimonials from two people who claim they were with Ruggs when he missed the call to take the test and he didn't hear the signal from the monitor.

"He should not be punished because his case attracts so much attention," his lawyer told the judge.

According to TMZ, Ruggs is now required to wear two ankle monitors that continuously test his alcohol levels 24/7.

One ankle monitor is a continuous alcohol device and the other is a GPS monitor.

Judge Suzan Baucum said she was "comfortable with a higher level of monitoring," but she warned Ruggs, "if there are any misses, if there are any problems, if there is any alcohol detected in your system, you need to know that's going to be problematic for this court going forward."

"You look scared," Ruggs tells her. He then hit the brakes, causing Washington to drop her cell phone. The video, which was titled "Wild Out Wednesdays," has since been deleted from her YouTube channel.

Ruggs was released from a Las Vegas jail after posting $150,000 bond on Tuesday. He was ordered to wear an ankle monitor while on home confinement. He can't touch alcohol, or drive and he must surrender his passport.

He told police they were on their way to his $1.1 million Las Vegas home when the fatal incident happened.

A prosecutor will ask for the maximum penalty for former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III at his DUI trial.

The Raiders released Ruggs from his contract on Tuesday, hours after he was involved in a fatal DUI crash that left a female motorist and her dog dead.

Ruggs, 22, was driving at more than 150 mph with a blood-alcohol level twice Nevada's legal limit when his Chevrolet Corvette crashed into the back of a Toyota RAV4.

The impact and fireball killed a 23-year-old woman and her dog, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

The Toyota was fully engulfed in flames by the time emergency responders arrived.

Ruggs and his passenger, Kiara Je'nai Kilgo-Washington, 22, with whom he has a baby daughter, were treated at a hospital with "serious" but non-life-threatening injuries.

A loaded gun was found in his car, prosecutors say.

Ruggs was booked into a Las Vegas jail and appeared in court on Wednesday with his attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld. He wore a neck brace and was in a wheelchair after suffering a hip fracture in the crash.

He was not asked to enter a plea to the charges, pending the formal filing of charges by Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson, according to NFL.com.

Prosecutor Eric Bauman said air bag computer data showed the Corvette slowed from 156 mph to 127 mph before it collided with the Toyota.

Judge Joe M. Bonaventure said he could not recall crash case involving a speed that high since he became a judge.

The prosecutor plans to throw the book at Ruggs who faces a maximum of 20 years in state prison.

Henry Ruggs III has been let go by the Las Vegas Raiders following a drunk driving crash that left a female motorist dead early Tuesday.

Stores selling Ruggs' Las Vegas Raiders merchandise have pulled the items from their shelves, according to TMZ.

The 22-year-old star wide receiver faces two felony charges of driving while under the influence and reckless driving, ESPN reported.

Ruggs was released from the hospital and taken straight to jail on Tuesday to await a bond hearing scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 3.

Ruggs was behind the wheel of a custom wrapped Chevrolet Corvette when it plowed into the back of a Toyota RAV4 on a busy roadway several miles west of the famed Las Vegas strip at about 3:39 a.m. local time.

When police arrived at the scene, the Toyota was fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters put out the blaze and discovered the deceased female driver inside.

Ruggs and his passenger, Kiara Je'nai Kilgo-Washington, with whom he has a baby daughter, remained at the scene. Police say he "showed signs of impairment," but the LVMPD declined to disclose the results of his breathalyzer test.

Police are barred by federal privacy law from disclosing medical information, Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, told ESPN.

Probation is not an option in Nevada for a DUI that causes death. Ruggs faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted.

The Raiders selected the Alabama standout in the first-round of the 2020 NFL draft. At the time, team owner Mark Davis said, "He was the only person I wanted in this draft."

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III has been charged with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence (DUI).

Las Vegas police responded to a report of an accident involving two vehicles at approximately 3:39 a.m. on November 2.

Responding officers observed a Chevrolet Corvette and a Toyota Rav4 that was on fire. The fire department put out the blaze and discovered a deceased victim inside the Toyota.

A preliminary investigation determined that the front of the Corvette collided into the back of the Toyota at a high rate of speed.

Ruggs, 22, the driver of the Corvette, remained at the scene and appeared to be intoxicated. He and a female passenger were transported to UMC Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Ruggs was charged with DUI resulting in death after a fatal car accident, police say. The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

According to Twitter, Ruggs was gifted the wrapped Corvette last year.

In Nevada, the sentence for DUI causing bodily harm or death is a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted.

Ruggs' attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, told the Associated Press that the crash is still under investigation and asked "everyone to reserve judgment until all the facts are gathered."

The Raiders selected Ruggs 12th overall in the 2020 draft out of Alabama. He caught 24 passes for 469 yards and two touchdowns this season.
