A police spokesperson stated that officers were dispatched to a club in the 600 block of North Harwood Street, near Federal Street, in response to reports of an assault at about 2:30 am Monday.

New reports informed that the alleged victim - a man - was transferred to the hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries. He reportedly had ”visible swelling on one side of his face."

Additionally, regarding Rice's involvement, officials claimed that Rice, a former Richland High School star, was accused. They did not confirm other names, stating, “It is not our practice to release or confirm a suspect identity during an investigation.”

Reports also claim that as of Tuesday afternoon, no charges were filed, implying there were no records of Rice's recent arrest.

Rashee Rice's ongoing legal troubles

Merely a month ago, the police tied Rice to eight charges when a multivehicle crash left at least seven people injured on March 30 in Dallas. Back then, Rice and SMU footballer Theodore ‘Teddy’ Knox were said to have been driving two luxury sports cars that were ultimately connected to the speed-racing accident.

According to The Dallas News Morning, an arrest-warrant affidavit states that Rice was driving 119 mph before the cars collided in the 6600 block of North Central Expressway. Pictures caught Rice and four others fleeing the scene without looking back to offer any support to the afflicted parties.

As a result, Rice faced a count of aggravated assault, one for a collision that led to serious bodily injury and six others for a crash involving injury. Both Rice and Knox surrendered to the authorities two weeks after the accident. They also shortly posted a bond.
