DALLAS — Dallas police have issued arrest warrants for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice and another man in connection with a six-car crash last month.

Rice, 23, and a 21-year-old man will each face one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury, according to the Dallas Police Department.

Citing law enforcement officials, the Dallas Morning News reported a vehicle believed to be registered to or leased to Kansas City Chiefs WR Rashee Rice was involved in a crash in northeast Dallas at around 6:20 p.m. local time Saturday.

The drivers of two sports cars were speeding in the far-left lane of the North Central Expressway on March 31, police spokesperson Kristin Lowman told CNN last week.

“The Lamborghini traveled onto the shoulder and hit the center median wall, causing a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles (six vehicles total involved),” Lowman said. “The occupants of the Lamborghini and the Corvette all ran from the scene without stopping to determine if anyone needed medical help or providing their information.”

Four people from other vehicles were treated for injuries, Lowman added.

Rice’s attorney has said his client was driving the Lamborghini. Dallas police confirmed that Wednesday and said the other man was driving the Corvette. None of the passengers in the Corvette or Lamborghini will be charged in relation to the incident, according to police.

CNN reached out Wednesday to law enforcement for more information about the potential charges and the crash, but Dallas police did not give any additional details.

In a social media post last week, Rice said he had met with police regarding the collision.

“I take full responsibility for my part in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities. I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident,” he wrote.

Rice, 23, was selected by the Chiefs in the second round of last year’s NFL Draft and as a rookie established himself as the team’s most reliable wide receiver, tallying 79 catches for 938 yards and a team-high of seven touchdowns.

In four playoff games, he added another 26 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown, setting the rookie record for receptions in one postseason. His production and trustworthy hands helped the Chiefs and star quarterback Patrick Mahomes win the Super Bowl in February – the team’s third NFL championship in the past five years.

Rice played college football at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and grew up in North Richland Hills in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
