LAS VEGAS (AP)  — A Las Vegas judge has ordered former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III to appear in court Monday after learning he missed a required alcohol test while on house arrest following a fatal crash he's accused of causing.

Ruggs' lawyers told Judge Suzan Baucum that he “self-tested” negative shortly after missing a call for a breath test last week. Ruggs could face a return to jail. He's currently free on $150,000 bail, electronic monitoring and four-times-a-day alcohol checks while facing felony DUI charges that carry mandatory prison time.

The fiery Nov. 2 crash killed a 23-year-old woman and her dog.
