An Oklahoma City police officer who suffered a head injury in a weekend car crash remains in critical condition, officials announced Wednesday at a news conference at OU Medical Center.
Matt Grice, 32, of Harrah, has been a patrol officer with the Oklahoma City Police Department for five years. He also is an Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter.
“His condition is a little bit changed but it hasn't changed much from when he first got here,” police Capt. Dexter Nelson said. “We still do know which way we're going to go here. The doctors are waiting for him to see how much he can pull through at this point.”
The Grice family appreciates all the support from around the world, friend and family spokesman Daniel Rubenstein said Wednesday.
“I've gotten text messages from guys he has fought and they are concerned and were wanting to send their best wishes,” Rubenstein said. “It's really a testament to Matt and who he is. We've gotten tweets from Europe and Asia and everywhere with people just being concerned.”
Rubenstein and Grice wrestled together at the University of Oklahoma and both attended a wrestling reunion over the weekend.
“Matt is a wrestler. He is stronger than a fighter,” Rubenstein said. “It's not the first time he's been in a car accident and had surgery, so, for him, he's going to pull through this. He's a strong kid.”
