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.
