“Put this b**tard away for 50 years”: NFL fans outraged after Henry Ruggs set to serve less jail time for car accident charges

The NFL community is in an uproar after the news that former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III will serve less jail time for the charges stemming from a car accident that killed Tina Tintor and her dog. Fans have expressed their outrage on social media, calling for Ruggs to face the maximum penalty for his actions.

Ruggs was driving under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into Tintor’s car at speeds of up to 156mph, causing it to burst into flames. He was found to be more than twice the legal drink-drive limit in Nevada. The charges against him include DUI resulting in death and vehicular manslaughter, to which he pleaded guilty.

While Ruggs will serve time behind bars, fans are furious that his sentence falls short of what they believe he deserves. Many have taken to social media to express their anger, with some calling for a boycott of the NFL.

The outcry has been fueled by the fact that he could have faced up to 50 years in prison if he had been convicted at trial. However, his plea deal will see him serve just three to ten years, with the possibility of parole after serving one-third of his sentence.
