SMU Wide Receiver Teddy Knox Suspended Following Arrest Warrant in Multi-Vehicle Crash

SMU wide receiver Teddy Knox has been suspended by the university following an arrest warrant issued by the Dallas police in connection with a multi-vehicle crash that occurred on March 30. The crash involved Knox and Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice, who is also facing charges related to the incident.

In a statement, SMU acknowledged the seriousness of the allegations but cited federal student privacy laws as the reason for not disclosing further details regarding the disciplinary proceedings. Knox and Rice are believed to have been the drivers of two high-end sports cars involved in the crash on U.S. 75. Rice’s attorney, Royce West, confirmed that his client admitted to authorities that he was behind the wheel of a Lamborghini SUV, while Knox is suspected to have been driving a Corvette.

Rice is currently facing eight charges, including aggravated assault, and an arrest warrant for Knox lists the same charges. Knox’s attorney, Deandra Gant, stated that they have fully cooperated with law enforcement but declined to provide further comment at this time.

It remains unclear whether Knox has turned himself in, but Rice surrendered to the police on Thursday night. The crash occurred around 6:30 PM local time on U.S. 75 northbound, involving a total of six cars. Both the Corvette and Lamborghini were reportedly speeding and lost control, resulting in the collision. Marijuana was found in both vehicles, along with credit cards, a check, a diamond chain, and a Chiefs playbook. Two individuals were taken to the hospital as a result of the crash.

Teddy Knox, who is entering his third season at SMU, follows in the footsteps of Rice, who also played college football at the university.
