Rashee Rice: Kansas City Chiefs player hands himself in to police in connection with Dallas car crash

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice has turned himself in to police in connection with his role in a car crash that left four people with minor injuries.

The 23-year-old wide receiver was taken to a jail in south Dallas after handing himself in to Glenn Heights Police on Thursday, Sky News’ US partner network, NBC, reported.

It comes after a warrant for his arrest was issued on 10 April, according to NBC.

The football player was later bonded out of prison – a way of paying to remain out of jail until a defendant’s court date – according to a spokesperson for the DeSoto city manager’s office.

Rice was accused of aggravated assault, collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision, after reportedly being part of a group that crashed while driving a Lamborghini and a Corvette at high speeds on 30 March.

Police added that the occupants of the Lamborghini and Corvette left the scene on North Central Expressway without providing information or checking if anyone needed medical attention.

In a statement last week, Rice apologized, telling fans that he took full responsibility for his actions and would cooperate with authorities.

“I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident,” the football star wrote on Instagram.

Eddie Garcia, Dallas Police chief, said in a statement after the arrest warrants were announced that the investigation continues and has no timeline, according to NBC.
