Arrest warrant issued for Chiefs WR Rashee Rice

Rashee Rice

Dallas police issued an arrest warrant for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice on Wednesday on eight charges stemming from a chain-reaction crash on March 30.

Four people sustained minor injuries in a incident that was created by two speeding cars, according to the police.

Rice and the man police say was driving the other speeding car, Theodore Knox, 21, each face one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury.

Rice, who is not yet in custody, has one day to appear. Multiple outlets reported that he plans to turn himself in.

Last week, Rice came forward to apologize to the injured parties and accept responsibility for the accidents.

He posted to his Instagram story on April 3, “Today I met with Dallas PD investigators regarding Saturday’s accident. I take full responsibility for my part in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities. I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident.”

A Lamborghini sport utility vehicle leased by Rice was one of two speeding sports cars that authorities say caused a chain-reaction crash on a downtown Dallas highway.

The occupants of the Lamborghini and a Corvette left the scene without checking to see if anyone needed medical attention or providing their information, according to police.

Attorney Royce West said on Thursday that Rice was cooperating with police “and will take all necessary steps to address this situation responsibly.”

The Chiefs and the NFL are monitoring the developing situation.

Rice, who turns 24 on April 22, grew up in the North Texas suburb of North Richland Hills and attended college in Dallas at SMU.

He recorded 79 catches and 938 yards with a team-leading seven touchdown receptions in 16 games (eight starts) after being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He also had 26 catches for 262 yards and a score in four playoff games to help the Chiefs secure their second straight Super Bowl title.
