The lawyer representing Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice is demanding the media cover his client’s “whole body of work” instead of focusing on his involvement in the high-speed street race wreck that resulted in multiple injuries in Dallas last weekend.

Last Saturday, a vehicle registered to Rice was involved in an accident in which two sports cars that were racing on a Dallas street collided, resulting in multiple injuries and multiple cars.

There is also allegedly video of Rice and his friends leaving the scene of the accident.

On Thursday, the same day in which he admitted that Riice was the driver of the Lamborghini, a fact Rice himself did not acknowledge in his Wednesday statement, Rice’s Attorney Royce West challenged the media to shift their focus from his client’s actions last weekend, and instead focus on his “body of work.”

“Why don’t you do a story of who he is, as opposed to what occurred?” West asked. “Because it seems as though what you’re saying is based on this one incident, you’re going to define him based on this incident, as opposed to his entire body of work. I would say each and every one of you, if all of us had to be defined by one incident, that would be ridiculous, as opposed to our entire body. So I’d ask that you as the media, look at his entire body of work before saying exactly who he is. That will be better.”

It’s unsurprising that Rice’s attorney would want to take the focus off his client’s alleged actions last weekend. Operating a vehicle in a street race, having it lead to an accident, and then fleeing the accident are serious offenses.
