Ravens running back Ray Rice and his fiancee were arrested over the weekend after a fight at a casino in Atlantic City, according a statement from the Atlantic City Police Department.
Casino security called officers to the Revel Casino at about 2:50 a.m. Saturday after a domestic dispute between Rice and Janay Palmer that was recorded by video surveillance, according to a statement from police. Footage appeared to show both parties involved in a physical altercation.
“The complaint summons indicates that both Rice and Palmer struck each other with their hands,” the statement said.
Both refused medical attention and did not report any injuries. Rice, 27, and Palmer, 26, were charged with simple assault-domestic violence and were released on a summons to appear in court.
Rice's attorney, Andrew Alperstein, described the allegations as a “very minor physical altercation” with Palmer.
This incident probably won't impact his 2014 status, but it's not the way that Rice wants to start the offseason after a disappointing 2013.
