LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas judge is due to issue a ruling Thursday on whether to limit medical information that prosecutors receive about former Raiders player Henry Ruggs III following a fiery fatal crash. Ruggs didn’t appear with his attorneys in court on Wednesday. They argued the state can obtain a report about Ruggs’ blood-alcohol level after the Nov. 2 crash but a judge can’t compel first-responders to testify about his physical condition. Ruggs is due next week for a hearing of evidence alleging he was driving 156 mph with a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit before the crash that killed Tina Tintor. Ruggs was released by the Raiders after the crash and is on house arrest.
