Chiefs Wide Receiver Rashee Rice Under Investigation for Alleged Assault at Dallas Nightclub

Dallas police are currently investigating Rashee Rice, a wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, for an alleged assault at a local nightclub, as reported by WFAA on Tuesday. The incident is said to have occurred in the early hours of Monday morning at an establishment associated with Lit Kitchen. Witnesses are being interviewed by the police regarding the alleged assault, which resulted in one individual being taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The victim exhibited visible swelling on the side of his face, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Officers were dispatched to the scene around 2:30 a.m., and authorities have confirmed that Rice is a suspect in the case. However, no charges have been filed thus far. This incident follows Rice’s ongoing legal troubles stemming from a multi-vehicle crash in Dallas back in March. Rice, along with SMU receiver Teddy Knox, is facing eight felony counts related to the incident, which resulted in two individuals being hospitalized. Additionally, Rice is being sued for $10 million in damages by two of the crash victims, Irina Gromova and Edvard Petrovskiy.

The lawsuit alleges that Rice, despite his physical abilities and public figure status, recklessly drove a high-powered vehicle through the public roads of Dallas County, causing harm to innocent individuals. Rice turned himself in to authorities in April and was subsequently released on bond. In a statement issued by his lawyer, Royce West, Rice expressed remorse for his actions and pledged full cooperation with law enforcement during the investigation of the crash.

Rashee Rice, a native of North Richland Hills and former SMU college football player, was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. During his rookie season, Rice recorded 79 catches for 938 yards and seven touchdowns.
