Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice has been released on bond after turning himself in to police Thursday in connection with a multi-car crash that injured four people.

Rice, who authorities allege left the scene of the crash, was booked into the DeSoto Regional Jail in Dallas earlier Thursday, according to jail records.

“Mr. Rashee Rice turned himself in today and was released on bond,” read a statement from the office of attorney Royce West, who is representing Rice. “I want to re-[emphasize] Mr. Rice’s continued cooperation with law enforcement. Mr. Rice acknowledges his actions and feels deeply for those injured as a result of this accident. Our legal team is now tasked with reviewing all legal documents.”

Dallas Police had issued an arrest warrant for Rice on Wednesday.

The police had also issued a warrant against Theodore Knox, another driver allegedly involved in the March 30 crash on the North Central Expressway, who also allegedly left the scene. Knox was not in custody Thursday, authorities said.

Rice, 23, was driving a leased Lamborghini, and Knox, 21, was driving a Corvette on the highway at high speeds when they “caused a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles,” the police said in a statement.

Police have alleged both men left the scene without providing information to the other people involved.

Four people suffered minor injuries, according to the police.

Rice and Knox were each charged with eight criminal counts including aggravated assault, collision involving serious bodily injury and collision involving injury, according to the warrants.

None of the other passengers in the vehicles involved in the crash will be charged, Dallas Police said.

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 impacted in Saturday’s accident,” Rice said in the story.

The Kansas City Chiefs president Mark Donovan told a local radio station last week that the team will “gather the facts and we’ll react accordingly,” while the NFL said it is monitoring the situation.
