TMZ Sports has obtained a surveillance video from the Revel Casino in Atlantic City that purportedly shows Baltimore RavensRay Rice dragging his fiancée out of an elevator after the altercation they were arrested for. TMZ Sports aired the video on Feb. 19.

Both Rice and his fiancée Janay Palmer were arrested early Saturday morning at the Revel. It was claimed that they both put their hands on each other in the domestic violence incident. Both parties were released on a summons.

Ray Rice’s attorney, Michael Diamondstein hasn’t yet seen the video. He was very adamant about not trying the case in the media. He added, “However, the video that’s being posted by TMZ Sports is not the complete event, but is merely the end result of what transpired.” He asked the public to refrain from jumping to judgment until all the facts and evidence come out.

Meanwhile, Ray Rice may have his own problems with the NFL over the incident. The simple assault-domestic violence charge may violate the NFL’s personal conduct policy, even if he’s not convicted.

It’s up to the discretion of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell whether players are punished under this policy. Goodell once suspended Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for simply being investigated for an alleged sexual assault. Roethlisberger was never charged with a crime.

If a player pleads guilty to a lesser charge or no contest, he can still be punished. This could include fines, suspensions, and a few more serious consequences like banishment from the league. Repeat offenders are dealt with quite harshly.

This is Ray Rice’s first time to be involved in anything of this nature. That may get him lesser consequences, but it’s doubtful that he will get off scot-free. Every case is judged on a case-by-case basis. Rice has already spoken with his coach, John Harbaugh, to explain the events from his side of the story.

What happens with Ray Rice over this incident remains to be seen. Right now, only Ray and Janay really know what happened at the Revel last weekend. Everyone, including Commissioner Goodell, will have to wait until the court appearance date when the full story will be told.
