Lawyers for Henry Ruggs III wrote in a court filing that a witness said firefighters were slow to extinguish a vehicle fire sparked by a deadly crash that authorities say was caused by the former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver.

Ruggs, 22, is accused of driving drunk at speeds up to 156 mph with his girlfriend in his Corvette sports car before the predawn crash Nov. 2. The team released him hours after the crash.

A funeral for the woman who died, Tina Tintor, 23, was scheduled Thursday at a Serbian Orthodox church, followed by a private burial at a Las Vegas cemetery.

"Firemen did not attempt to extinguish the fire at Ms. Tintor's vehicle for approximately 20 minutes at which time the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames," defense attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld said in a Wednesday court filing that does not identify their witness.

The attorneys seek a court order to obtain Clark County Fire Department records about the crash and fire. A Nov. 17 court hearing was scheduled.
