Rice could face potential prison time if he if found guilty of the charges. According to authorities, the athlete was taken to jail after he surrendered to police with a bail bond of $40,000 posted.

Dallas police shared details of the crash, which involved two speeding cars - a Lamborghini and Corvette. The force said that the two cars caused a “chain reaction collision”, adding that the drivers of the two vehicles had fled the scene.

Six of the eight charges Rice is facing include collision involving bodily injury, with the seventh charge of collision involving serious bodily injury and an eighth of aggravated assault. An arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday (April 10), with Rice handing himself in around 24 hours later.

In a statement posted to social media last week, Rice told fans: "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.”
