Video shows Ray Rice knocking fiancee unconscious, report says
Police have obtained a videotape of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice hitting his fiancee and knocking her unconscious at an Atlantic City casino, according to a report on SI.com.
In a different video, shown below and obtained by TMZ on Wednesday, Rice drags fiancee Janay Palmer from an elevator inside the casino Saturday.
Rice and Palmer were each charged with simple assault after being arrested Saturday. Rice’s court appearance, originally scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed. A new date has not been set.
Rice’s attorney, Michael Diamondstein, told the Baltimore Sun that the video posted on TMZ is authentic but incomplete.
“The video that has been put up by TMZ shows the very end of what transpired between Ray and his fiancee,” Diamondstein told the Associated Press.
The Ravens now face a choice as to what to do with Rice. Cutting him would result in a $14.25-million hit on the salary cap.
Rice signed a five-year, $35-million deal in July 2012. He rushed for 660 yards last season.
