An arrest warrant was issued by the Kansas City Chiefs for wide receiver Rashee Rice for his alleged involvement in a crash that occurred on an expressway in Texas last month.

Rice, 23, is charged with six counts each of collisions involving injury and serious bodily harm, as well as one count of aggravated assault.

Police said that Rice, driving a Lamborghini and Theodore Knox driving a Corvette, were both driving on the North Central Expressway, in Dallas, on March 30th. The drivers lost control, speeded up, and hit four other cars.

Knox, 21 years old, faces the same charges that Rice. The passengers of the vehicle were not charged.

Brian McCarthy, NFL spokesperson, told Pro Football Talk that the NFL continues to monitor developments.

The crash injured four people.

Rice wrote on Instagram to apologize for his involvement and that he accepted “full responsibility”.

Royce West, Rice’s attorney, told reporters Thursday at a press conference that his client had admitted to Dallas Police that he was in the accident.

West stated that “Mr. Rice admitted that he drove the Lamborghini.” “He replied to that by saying that he was in the Lamborghini.”

According to West, Rice was always cooperative when asked questions by Dallas Police.

Rice admitted his involvement in the crash through an Instagram posting on Wednesday, saying that he “took full responsibility for my role in this matter” and would continue to work with authorities.

The statement ended with “I apologize to all those affected by the accident on Saturday.”

West said Rice wants to do right by those who were injured and property damaged in the accident.

West said, “By the grace of God someone could have been seriously injured. He understands and appreciates this.”

“He’ll do all he can to restore their lives to normal in terms of injuries and property damage. He will make sure he’s responsible for them getting through this particular part.”

Rice was one of Patrick Mahomes most trusted receivers after recording 938 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in the last season.

Rice became a world champion during his rookie year when the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
