Ruggs is one of only a few prisoners who get to work daytime hours at the mansion where Gov. Joe Lombardo, R., a former Clark County sheriff, resides.

Ruggs was assigned to minimum custody, a corrections spokesperson told Las Vegas TV station KLAS. That allows him to work in the community outside of a correctional camp.

Ruggs was ordered to be incarcerated for at least three years. He was convicted of DUI resulting in death and vehicular manslaughter following a deadly 2021 Las Vegas accident in which Tina Tintor and her dog perished.

Prosecutors said Ruggs was driving as fast as 156 mph moments before the collision.

His blood alcohol level was 0.16% after the collision, which is twice the legal limit in Nevada.

It’s located near the intersection of Lakeview Drive and Futheyville Road.
