Ray Rice, running back for the Baltimore Ravens, was arrested along with his fiancee Janay Palmer on Saturday after a domestic incident between the two at a casino in Atlantic City. And now TMZ have footage which, they claim, shows Rice dragging an unconscious Palmer from an elevator.
Rice, 27, and Palmer, 26, were charged by police with domestic assault against each other and were released on bail before appearing in court to offer a response. It was claimed at the time that the dispute was recorded by video surveillance, some of which has now been discovered.
TMZ Sports claim their footage shows Rice pulling Rice along the floor out of an elevator after the incident had taken place and just moments before authorities arrived. An attorney for Rice spoke to TMZ and offered this response:
"Neither Ray nor myself will try this case in the media."
The attorney 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."
"We'll assure the public that when this matter is fully tried and completed, you'll have a better understanding of what happened and we ask the public to reserve making any judgment until all of the facts come out."
