He has been involved in multiple off-the-field controversies. The 24-year-old was arrested in April after being involved in a six-vehicle crash where he left the scene. Rice was charged with one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury.

He was allegedly driving a Lamborghini up to a speed of 119 mph before the crash happened on a North Dallas highway.

Rice was sued by two separate people in the crash for  for $1 million in damages and no less than $10 million in punitive damages.
