Tina Tintor, the young woman who was killed in the accident with former Raiders player Henry Ruggs, was laid to rest on Thursday. Mark Davis, the owner of the Raiders, paid he respects during a ceremony attended by nearly 100 friends and family.

Davis was spotted by TMZ cameras in a traditional black suit, but he did not speak to the media outlet after the hour-long ceremony.

An attorney for the Tintor family said that they’re “devastated”of the 23-year-old.

“Family was everything to Tina,” the lawyer said, “and she was the light of her parents’ life.”

Tintor, a 23-year-old Vegas resident, had worked at a Target close to her home and the crash site. The store is providing grief counselors to deal with her death.

Her manager, Travis Winston, told TMZ, “”We’re deeply saddened by the death of our former team member, Tina Tintor. We extend our sympathies to her family and friends, and to all those impacted by this tragedy.”

Ruggs was reportedly driving 156mph just before the wreck, breaking down to 127mph right before impact, and was tested at a .161 BAC, more than twice the legal limit in Nevada. 

Prosecutors in his case have filed five felonies, as a result of his accident that left one woman dead.

Prosecutors now have decided to charge Ruggs with additional felony counts of DUI and reckless driving due to the injuries suffered by his passenger, girlfriend Kiara Je’nai Kilgo-Washington, who also goes by Rudy Washington. The misdemeanor charge is possession of a firearm while under the influence, stemming from a loaded gun found in Ruggs’ car at the scene.

Ruggs’ accident marks the fourth active NFL player in the last 25 years to be involved in a drunk-driving incident that resulted in death. The Las Vegas police tweeted that “Ruggs will be charged with DUI resulting in death, and according to USA Today, conviction on these charges could result in a sentence of two to 20 years in prison, under Nevada Law, which identifies the charge as a Class B felony.

All three previous players not only got lighter sentences than the average citizen would, all three returned to the NFL.
