We already knew Ray Rice and his fiancee, Janay Palmer, were arrested this past weekend in New Jersey after they "struck each other with their hands," but new video obtained by TMZ.com shows what looks to be the ugly end of the dispute.
The video allegedly shows Rice lifting and dragging a clearly unconscious Palmer out of a hotel elevator. Rice struggles to move Palmer's body, specifically her legs, completely away from the elevator doors. A man approaches them after a few moments, at which time Palmer seems to gain consciousness.
According to a court summons, Rice rendered Palmer unconscious by striking her with his hand. Rice and Palmer are expected to appear in court next week on simple assault-domestic violence charges.
This may still mean little or nothing for Rice's on-field status, but the league will do its due diligence and review the matter. The Ravens remain committed to Rice as a "big part" of their future.
