Court summons states Ray Rice knocked fiancee unconscious

Published Add your comment

The latest development in the story of Ray Rice's alleged altercation with his fiancee has emerged.

The Baltimore Ravens running back was arrested, along with his fiancee, yesterday in relation to the allegations, and earlier today video footage emerged showing the player seeming to carry an unconscious female out of an elevator at The Revel Casino in Atlantic City.

Now, as reported by Mike Hellgren CBS Baltimore, the court summons regarding the case has entered the public realm.

The summons, filed by the State of New Jersey at the Atlantic City Municipal Court against the NFL player, asserts that Rice did...

"commit assault by attempting to cause bodily injury to J.Palmer, specifically by striking her with his hand, rendering her unconscious, at the Revel Casino."

This information aligns itself with the details already discussed above and is a far cry from initial reports.

Earlier reports had suggested the altercation between the pair had been 'minor', but it seems that the three-time Pro Bowler is facing up to some tough questions in the near future.
