10/17/2019 3:57am

Champion boxer Errol Spence Jr. has been released from the hospital and is now facing a DWI charge, Dallas police say.Spence, 29, was driving a Ferrari at a high rate of speed along South Riverfront Boulevard when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed shortly before 3 a.m. on Oct. 10, police said. The Ferrari veered left over the median and onto the southbound lanes, which sent the vehicle flipping multiple times, police said. Would-Be Robber Arrested After Falling Through Store Ceiling Spence, the IBF and WBC welterweight champion, was not wearing a seat belt, according to police.He was taken by paramedics to Methodist Dallas Medical Center with injuries that were considered serious, but not life-threatening, police said.Dallas police said they would not get an official speed of how fast Spence was driving at the time of the crash, since it was a single vehicle collision and there were no other criminal charges.Last month, the former U.S. Olympian added the WBC welterweight title to his IBF strap with a thrilling split-decision victory over Shawn Porter in Los Angeles.With his rangy athleticism and virtuosic skill, Spence, who is 26-0 with 21 knockouts, has captured fans with a series of crisp victories in recent years. He won the IBF title in 2017 by stopping Kell Brook in England, and he defended it three times, culminating in a one-sided thrashing of undersized Mikey Garcia in March.Photo Credit: Knockout/NBC 5/Getty Images
