ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Ray Rice, the Baltimore Ravens’ star running back who starred at New Rochelle (N.Y.) High School and Rutgers, knocked out his fiancee during an argument at an Atlantic City casino, police allege in a complaint.
TMZ Sports released a video of what it says shows Rice, who helped the Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII a little more than a year ago, dragging a seemingly motionless woman out of a Revel Casino elevator.
Police charged both Rice, 27, and Janay Palmer with simple assault in the Saturday incident.
A police complaint says Rice struck her with his hand, “rendering her unconscious.” Palmer is also accused of striking Rice with her hand.
Palmer’s attorney, Robert Gamburg, said Thursday he’s certain neither person committed a crime. Rice’s attorney, Michael Diamondstein, has said he hopes the case is shown to be a misunderstanding.
Diamondstein told The Press of Atlantic City that the TMZ video “is obviously edited video.” Neither he nor Palmer’s attorney would comment about the video to The Associated Press.
Rice and Palmer have a 2-year-old daughter, Rayven.
