Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice turned himself in to the Glenn Heights Police Department on Thursday evening before being taken to the DeSoto Jail and being released on bond, according to WFAA in Dallas. Rice’s total bond was $40,000.

Rice, 23, is facing eight felony charges in the case after admitting to driving one of the vehicles involved in starting a multi-vehicle crash. Rice’s attorney, Royce West, released a statement Thursday night after Rice was released on bond.

“Mr. Rashee Rice turned himself in today and was released on bond,” West’s statement begins, per WFAA. “I want to re-emphasis [sic] 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.”

The Dallas Morning News reported details of Rice’s arrest-warrant affidavit, providing more information about Rice’s actions leading up to the crash. The DMN reports that the affidavit says Rice “was driving 119 miles per hour in the seconds before he caused a multivehicle crash.”

The affidavit also reportedly notes that the two cars, Rice’s Chevrolet Corvette and the Lamborghini Urus Rice admitted to driving, “made multiple aggressive maneuvers to get through traffic” before the accident and that “both took faulty evasive action” to avoid a collision before colliding with a sedan, starting the chain reaction.

“According to crash data cited in the affidavit, the Urus was traveling 119 miles per hour 4.5 seconds before the collision,” the DMN story continues. “The Corvette was traveling 116 miles per hour 7.5 seconds before the collision, but had slowed to 91 miles per hour about 1.5 seconds before. The speed limit was 70 miles per hour. “
