According to Hector Majia, a Las Vegas News Reporter for 8 News Now, Steve Wolfson had more comments on charges filed against Ruggs. Wolfson, a Clark County District Attorney, gave reporters information of a second felony DUI and reckless driving charge against Ruggs. If he is convicted, Ruggs cannot get probation. He must serve a prison sentence of at least two years.

Per Wolfson, the former NFL wide receiver could face up to 50 years in prison.

He also has a misdemeanor charge with four felony charges. The misdemeanor was the gun found in the car.

Ruggs’ legal team was on his behalf. He has been compliant with all of his alcohol breath check-ins and drug testing.
