According to Philadelphia’s NBC 10 on Feb. 17, Ravens running back Ray Rice and fiancée Janay A. Palmer were arrested at the Revel casino in Atlantic City early Saturday morning. The pair was charged with domestic violence/simple assault and released with a summons.
The altercation was caught on tape. According to Sgt. Monica McMenamin of the Atlantic City Police Department, the tape demonstrated that both parties were involved. The summons claims each party struck the other.
Rice’s attorney, Andrew Alperstein, commented that the arrest was for a “very minor physical altercation.” Another of Rice’s attorneys, Michael Diamondstein, stated that he’s hopeful an investigation of the matter will prove that “the matter turns out to be little more than a misunderstanding.”
We are aware of the Friday night situation with Ray Rice and his fiancée. We have spoken with Ray, and know that they returned home together after being detained."
Ray Rice wears Number 27 for the Ravens and is a three-time Pro Bowler with the team.
No injuries to either party resulted from the incident.
