The Ray Rice video shows the Baltimore Ravens running back dragging fiancee Janay Palmer unconscious across the elevator floor.
A new video has been released that shows Rice carrying his fiancee out of the elevator door. Palmer appears to be unconscious during the elevator ride until Rice grabs her to pick her up off the floor.
The one-minute video was enough for prosecutors to cancel Rice’s next court appearance while they review the footage. According to witnesses, Rice slapped her so hard that it rendered her unconscious. While the video does not show the fight taking place, it shows the aftermath as Rice’s fiancee was immobile.
Despite the mounting evidence weighing against him, Rice and his attorneys claim that no physical altercation took place. Rice’s reps state that the video only shows what happened after the fight and therefore people should not jump to conclusions.
For now, the Atlantic City Police Department have arrested and charged Ray Rice with an assault and a disorderly charge:
“The domestic violence incident in Atlantic City involving Ray Rice has been referred to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office for review. The Atlantic City Police Department has requested the Prosecutor’s Office review the case to ensure all appropriate charges are considered. The matter remains under investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office in conjunction with the Atlantic City Police Department. At the present time, Mr. Rice remains charged with simple assault, a disorderly persons offense.”
While Janay Palmer has not sought medical attention and did not file any injuries to police, the Ray Rice video and the accusations against him may have closed his NFL career. The Baltimore Ravens issued a statement and said they are doing their own investigation into the matter.
Ray Rice and Janay Palmer have not spoken about the incident publicly.
