Minutes before the Dallas P.D. released its statement, Spence sent out his first message since the crash, saying "No broken bones I'm a savage!".

Authorities said Spence was intoxicated when he was thrown out of a Ferrari at a high rate of speed in an accident on October 10. He was in the intensive care unit at Methodist Dallas Medical center, but is now out of the hospital, cops said.

Security camera footage showing Spence's accident was disseminated on Thursday.

Police said the vehicle was speeding, but will not investigate exactly how fast it was going, because "it was a single auto accident with no other criminal charges". Dallas police are investigating the cause of the crash.


Hours after the incident, PBC said Spence's injuries weren't life-threatening.

"Spence is awake & responding and his condition is stable".

Spence was rushed to a nearby Dallas hospital but fortunately didn't suffer any broken bones and only some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery. "He is now resting with his family by his side".

Spence (26-0, 21 KOs), 29, was just 2½ weeks removed from scoring the biggest victory of his career on September 28, when he won a split decision against Shawn Porter to unify two 147-pound world titles in a pay-per-view headliner at Staples Center in Los Angeles in an action-packed contender for fight of the year. The accident occurred 12 days after the southpaw beat Shawn Porter via split decision in a fight of the year contender at Staples Center.
