Police issue arrest warrants for driver Rashee Rice in connection with multi-car crash

Dallas police issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for Kansas City Chiefs player Rashee Rice in connection with his involvement in a multi-car crash that injured four people where he allegedly left the scene.

Police also issued an arrest warrant for Theodore Knox, another driver involved in the March 30 crash on the North Central Expressway who reportedly left the scene.

Last week, Rice admitted on an Instagram Story that he was involved in the crash and was cooperating with investigators.

“I sincerely apologize to everyone affected by Saturday’s accident,” Rice said in the article.

Kansas City Chiefs president Mark Donovan told a local radio station last week that the team would “gather the facts and respond accordingly,” while the NFL said it was monitoring the situation.
