What to know about Rashee Rice, Chiefs WR facing charges for role in serious crash

Rashee Rice, the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver who surrendered to police Thursday for his role in a multi-car crash on the North Central Expressway in Dallas, is facing several charges including one second-degree felony that could be punishable by two to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

Here's what you need to know about the 23-year-old who was released on bond just a day after charges were filed Wednesday.

What did Rashee Rice do?

Police said Rice, driving a Lamborghini, was racing with another driver on a Dallas expressway March 30. An investigation determined both drivers lost control and caused a “chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles."

As a result of the crash, two people were treated on the scene for minor injuries while two passengers from another vehicle were taken to a local hospital for injuries.

Rice was given 24 hours to surrender to police after charges were filed. He turned himself in Thursday and was booked at the Glenn Heights (Texas) Police Department and subsequently taken to DeSoto Jail before being released on bond. WFAA-TV reported his total bond was $40,000.

What are the charges against Rashee Rice?

Rice is facing eight total charges. Among them are six counts of collision involving bodily injury, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and one count of aggravated assault, according to Dallas police.

The latter charge is the most serious, as it is a second-degree felony that could carry a five-figure fine along with up to two decades in prison.

Who is the other driver involved with Rashee Rice?

The other driver, who police said was driving a Corvette, was SMU cornerback Teddy Knox. In addition to facing the same eight charges as Rice, Knox was suspended from the Mustangs' football program.

"SMU has been notified by Dallas Police of an arrest warrant for Theodore 'Teddy' Knox, a student-athlete on the Mustang football team. Knox has been suspended from the team," the program said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports. "SMU takes these allegations seriously. Federal student privacy laws prevent the University from discussing details involving student disciplinary proceedings."

Will the NFL suspend Rashee Rice?

Rice could be disciplined under the NFL's personal conduct policy, but the league has been quiet thus far. The Chiefs have also not commented on Rice's status.

A second-round draft pick by the Chiefs in 2023, Rice totaled 79 catches for 938 yards to go along with seven touchdowns during his rookie season.
