Ravens Terminate Rice After Video Surfaces of Him Punching Fiancee

BALTIMORE, Maryland – The Baltimore Ravens have terminated Ray Rice’s contract after video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancee in an elevator.  The Ravens announced the termination on Twitter.

Disturbing video of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee in an elevator has been obtained by TMZ.

The video from inside the elevator was the first look into what happened in the elevator.  Previously, only video of Rice carrying his fiance’s limp body out of an elevator in Atlantic City, N.J. had been released.

But the video from TMZ shows Rice and Janay Palmer enter the elevator and Rice viciously punch her.  She goes down to the floor and is out.  According to TMZ, Palmer hit a handrail in the elevator before hitting the floor.

Rice was suspended for two NFL games, but league commissioner Roger Goodell says the league“didn’t get it right” when it handed down Rice’s punishment in July.

Rice faced a felony aggravated assault charge in the case, but he accepted a pretrial intervention program that allowed him to avoid jail time and could lead to the charge being wiped from his record.

Rice and Palmer were married in March, just a month after the elevator incident.

    Words can’t describe the level of disgust I feel for a guy like that. But then she must be a genuine idiot for actually marrying him after he hit her. Sadly, they probably deserve each other.
