ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Surveillance video footage that appears to show Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice dragging his fiancée, Janay Palmer, after the two allegedly attacked each other at a casino in Atlantic City has been posted on the website of TMZ Sports.
The footage depicts Rice, 27, dragging a seemingly unconscious Palmer, 26, out of an elevator before someone who looks like casino security enters the shot. When Palmer eventually comes to, Rice walks away.
Rice and Palmer were arrested on Feb. 15 and charged with simple assault-domestic violence after they allegedly struck each other at the Revel Casino. "The complaint summons indicates that both Rice and Palmer struck each other with their hands," according to a police statement.
It sounds as if the elevator video was shot moments before the pair was arrested.
"Neither Ray nor myself will try this case in the media,” Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein, told TMZ. "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."
