CHOCTAW, Oklahoma -

Family, friends and colleagues of an Oklahoma City police officer who was injured in a car crash are putting on a fundraiser Friday night in Choctaw to help fund his recovery.

Matt Grice suffered a traumatic brain injury September 8 when another car slammed into the back of his vehicle near Shawnee. He was off-duty at the time of the crash.

Grice, who is also a UFC fighter, had to undergo brain surgery. Friends say because he's been unable to work, his medical bills have piled up and created a financial strain on his family. Grice is married with two children.
