    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas judge told attorneys for Henry Ruggs III on Wednesday to get their own subpoena for fire department records about the fatal crash and fire the former Raiders wide receiver is accused of causing by driving drunk at speeds up to 156 mph. Justice of the Peace Suzan Baucum told attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld during a brief hearing that she didn’t agree with the effort and a court order from her wasn’t needed. The lawyers have said in court filings that a witness told them firefighters were slow to extinguish flames in the vehicle in which Tina Tintor, 23, died on Nov. 2. They have not identified the witness. A Clark County spokesman has said there were no delays in the firefighting response or the attack on the fire. Witnesses told police they tried to rescue Tintor. But they were turned back by heat, flames and smoke. Ruggs, 22, was released by the Raiders after the crash. He’s free on $150,000 bail under strict home confinement with electronic monitoring and four-times-a-day alcohol...
    HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) — Two Duke basketball players — coach Mike Krzyzewski’s grandson and a top NBA prospect — were arrested over the weekend on charges related to impaired driving, according to court records. Michael Savarino, Krzyzewski’s grandson, was pulled over for a stop sign violation in rural Orange County just after 1 a.m. Sunday, said Sgt. Chris Knox, a North Carolina State Highway Patrol spokesman. The 20-year-old junior was driving teammate Paolo Banchero’s white Jeep and admitted that he had consumed “several shots,” according to court records. A test showed Savarino had a blood alcohol content of 0.08, the level at which a driver is considered impaired, and he was charged with driving while impaired and driving after consuming under the age of 21, records show. He was released under a written promise to appear in court on Dec. 9, and his license was temporarily revoked. Banchero, who was riding in the back seat, was charged with aiding and abetting impaired driving and was released. He has a Dec. 8 court date. The 19-year-old freshman was one of last...
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Attorneys for former Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs III launched a bid Wednesday to keep his medical records out of the hands of prosecutors charging him with driving under the influence in a fiery crash that killed a Las Vegas woman and cost Ruggs his spot on the team. Ruggs didn’t appear in person in court as a prosecutor filed additional felony charges of DUI causing substantial injury and misdemeanor possession of a gun while under the influence that could mean additional prison time if the 22-year-old former first-round draft pick is convicted.

                        The Star News Network confirmed Monday that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley was the same Mark A. Milley charged with driving under the influence in Cumberland County, North Carolina, after a Nov. 19, 1982 traffic stop. The Star obtained the arrest and court records from the incident, which were validated by a Cumberland County, North Carolina, records section clerk to The Star last week. Here is the record from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department:   Those records show that Milley was not convicted on the drunk driving charge, but was found guilty of driving the wrong way on a one-way street. Milley paid a $100 fine for going the wrong way, plus a $31 court fee. The drunk driving charge was dismissed by the district attorney’s office on Dec. 21, 1982, according to the court records. There is no further information available about either incident, because under the rules then, the paper records would have been destroyed after three years, the clerk...
    The possibilities of autonomous driving are no longer theory, but a reality that will reduce shipping times, increase road safety and give drivers rest. Despite the fact that autonomous cars don’t quite work, for various reasons, there are other fields in which autonomous driving is making enough progress to see this technology with hope. In aviation and heavy transport the help of automatic control can be essential, both to optimize routes and to help drivers make safer trips. In this sense, the TuSimple company has been perfecting its autonomous driving system for years, and in its latest test they have broken all expectations. Last month, the American company shipped a shipment of watermelons from Arizona to Oklahoma using an autonomous system for more than 80% of the journey. A driver did the first 100 km and, starting in Tucson, the truck put the automatic up to Dallas, 1,528 km later. The truck traveled the route in 14 hours and 6 minutes, which is 10 hours less than the estimated time of what a human being should take according to the...
    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A judge overseeing the criminal trial of South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has ordered medical providers to turn over their health records for the pedestrian who was struck and killed by Ravnsborg last year. This week, retired Circuit Court Judge John Brown issued letters to several hospitals and clinics, ordering them to provide records about Joe Boever’s psychiatric state. The order comes after Ravnsborg’s defense alleged in court documents that Boever’s Sept. 12 death may have been a suicide. Investigators say Ravnsborg was distracted and swerved out of his lane when he was driving on Highway 14 near Highmore when he struck and killed Boever, a 55-year-old who was walking along the highway with a flashlight. Ravnsborg faces three misdemeanor charges of careless driving, use of an electronic device while driving and illegal lane change. Earlier this month, Ravnsborg’s attorneys filed a motion alleging that a pattern of alcoholism and prescription drug abuse by Boever that caused at least one family member, a cousin, to believe that a depressed Boever killed himself by jumping...
    OAKLAND — Nearly 18 months after a 42-year-old woman was killed when a stolen Audi crashed into the Subaru Outback she was driving, the Audi’s suspected driver has been charged with vehicular manslaughter, court records show. David Garibay-Vargas, 27, was charged with manslaughter with gross negligence, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving a stolen vehicle, court records show.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota safety officials are urging motorists to drive safely ahead of Memorial Day weekend, which marks the start of what’s historically been the deadliest 100 days on Minnesota roads. The Department of Public Safety cautioned in a statement Thursday that if driving behavior doesn’t improve soon, the state might be in for a repeat of last summer, when the state experienced the deadliest three-month stretch in nearly a decade. Data show that 158 people died between Memorial Day and Labor Day last year, accounting for about 40% of all 2020 traffic deaths. Already this year, driving-related fatalities are on the rise. The numbers may continue to increase as more Minnesotans travel due to the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions. According to safety officials, preliminary information shows that in the first five months of 2021 there’ve been 149 deaths on Minnesota roads. This marks a nearly 40% increase over last year, when the fatality count at this time was at 107. Safety officials say that speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, and failing to wear seat...
    PHOENIX (AP) — Prosecutors are urging a judge to approve a request to extradite a Phoenix driving school owner to Iraq on allegations that he participated in the killings of two police officers nearly 15 years ago in the Iraqi city of Fallujah as the leader of an al-Qaida group. They said the evidence provided by Iraqi authorities meets the standard for an American judge to certify an extradition request for Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, an Iraqi native who came to the United States as a refugee in 2009 and became a U.S. citizen in 2015. Prosecutors said witnesses saw Ahmed at the scene of the 2006 killings and that another person who claimed to have been part of the al-Qaida group had implicated Ahmed in both deaths. Lawyers for Ahmed asked the judge in a filing Friday to reject Iraq’s extradition request, saying his defense team hasn’t been able to adequately investigate the allegations because of the shutdown of international travel during the pandemic. They also said Ahmed’s extradition isn’t allowed under a U.S.-Iraq treaty provision that bars extraditions...
    A 31-year-old Lehigh driver is facing aggravated assault charges after state police say he was yelling at drivers and even hit one woman's car, sending it into a concrete median on I-78 earlier this month, authorities said. Justin C. Mitman, who was jailed March 8 in unrelated DUI and trespassing incidents from the day before, was identified after Pennsylvania State Police released photos of the truck and details about the road rage incident, LehighValleyLive says citing Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin and police Capt. Joseph F. Sokolofski. The woman was putting gas into a silver Toyota Prius when Justin C. Mitman of Coplay, operating a silver Toyota pickup truck, was driving around and yelling at customers in the Wawa parking lot on Schantz Road in Upper Macungie Township, around 2:45 p.m. on March 7, according to Trooper Nathan T. Branosky, and LehighValleyLive. Once the woman left Wawa, Mitman followed her in his car onto I-78 westbound, where he rear-ended her car near Exit 45, Branosky said. The woman attempted to drive away by leaving the interstate at Exit 40,...

    Hed: True Blue Denver jazz cornetist Ron Miles just dropped his latest album on Blue Note Records. When Denver-based cornetist Ron Miles recorded an album last fall, he had no idea it would come out on Blue Note Records, the renowned jazz label with an eight-decade legacy. Miles made the album, most of which was written when his father was near the end of his life, over a weekend in New York with guitarist Bill Frisell, drummer Brian Blade, bassist Thomas Morgan and pianist Jason Moran. A few months after recording the album, Frisell, who released his last two records on Blue Note, asked Miles if those tracks they made together had a home yet. While there were already a few labels interested, Frisell asked if he could play the collection for Don Was, who took over as president of Blue Note in 2012.

The German manufacturer lost 666 million euros ($787 million) before interest and taxes between April and June, its first quarterly deficit since the financial crisis in 2009. BMW’s auto business, which recorded a bigger-than-expected Ebit loss, was mainly to blame after deliveries tanked due to pandemic-related shutdowns of dealerships and factories, the company said Wednesday in a statement. BMW is the final German manufacturer to report after what has been a difficult quarter for carmakers. VW lost 2.4 billion euros and cut its dividend, while Daimler AG argued it had weathered the worst but still needs to slash tens of thousands of jobs. © Bloomberg Virus Hit Renault SA’s...
    A repeat offender from Dumont fled an attempted police stop in Old Tappan and was arrested after his car slammed into a tree, authorities said. James Wilmarth, 33, already was awaiting trial for a Teaneck burglary when Officer Charles DiMaria began pursuing him for speeding on North Washington Avenue shortly after 9:30 p.m. Monday, Police Chief Joseph Tracy said.

    By MELISSA HERNANDEZ of Fresh Take Florida news service, Fresh Take Florida, a news service of the University of Florida GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The owner of a landmark seafood restaurant in the Florida Panhandle who is the target of a federal tax fraud investigation is facing new felony drunken driving charges and what may become a challenging effort to renew his liquor license later this summer. The new legal problems also may complicate efforts by David Biegler, 49, co-owner of the Hurricane Oyster Bar and Grill in Santa Rosa Beach, to pay the IRS and Justice Department over what the government said he owes. The latest arrest means Biegler is simultaneously fighting separate drunken driving cases against him in two states. Biegler was arrested June 20 by sheriff’s deputies in Walton County after reports he drove his 2019 Dodge pickup into a ditch. Biegler pleaded not guilty Monday, and a pretrial hearing was tentatively set for Sept. 24. Biegler separately faces a pending misdemeanor drunken driving charge in Buncombe County, North Carolina, after his arrest there last year, a...
