Back in February it was reported that Baltimore Raven Ray Rice dragged his then-fiancee out of an Atlantic City hotel elevator. The video from the incident has now surfaced.
In the video, Rice hits Janay Rice first, she hits him back and he punches her again which causes her to hit her head on the elevator railing. She then lies unconscious. When the door opens, Ray attempts to drag her out of the elevator until he is stopped by what seems to be a hotel employee.
The couple married a month after the incident.
He apologized for his actions in a press conference. From Hello Beautiful:
“It just not right. It’s not right. It shouldn’t be tolerated,” said Ray. “That’s something I stand by, and I have to pay for that.”
He continued, pleading,”You know that’s not me.”
“We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator. That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today,” the league said in its statement.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell admitted that he “got it wrong” with Ray’s suspension. “I take responsibility for both the decision and for ensuring that our actions in the future properly reflect our values,” said Goodell.
