Spence released from hospital, charged with DWI

Welterweight world titleholder Errol Spence Jr. has been released from the hospital and charged with DWI following his crash in Dallas on Thursday.

Dallas Police said in a statement Wednesday evening, “Errol Spence Jr was charged with DWI, misdemeanor B. Mr. Spence has been released from the hospital and will need to address those charges. As for getting a speed of the vehicle, we will not be getting one. It was a single-car accident with no other criminal charges.”

Spence, who is a native of DeSoto, was in the intensive care unit after wrecking his Ferrari at approximately 3:00 a.m. on South Riverfront Boulevard near downtown Dallas.

Despite flipping his car numerous times, Spence (26-0, 21 KO’s), escaped with only facial lacerations and no broken bones.

“No broken bones, I’m a savage!!” Spence said on social media Wednesday.

Spence has since deleted the post.

The 29-year-old Spence unified two 147-pound belts on Sept. 28 with a split decision against former titlist Shawn Porter at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
