Elevator Video Shows Ray Rice Punching His Wife And Knocking Her Out Cold



The NFL is getting even more criticism for their poor response to the Ray Rice domestic violence case after video was released today of what really went down in the elevator.

TMZ released a video this morning of the Ravens running back punching his fiancé, Janay Palmer, and knocking her out in an elevator and then dragging her unconscious body out of it.

Earlier this year, hotel security camera video was released of Rice dragging his fiancé out of the Atlantic City elevator was released to the public but until now, the gravity of what really happened inside of the elevator was unknown. In March, Rice was charged with a felony assault, but Palmer, who married Rice shortly after the attack, declined to testify against him and the charges were reduced to counseling.

The NFL has received a lot of criticism for their initial response to the incident in which Rice was only suspended from playing for two games. In late August, N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell, wrote a letter apologizing to the team owners in regards to his response stating, “I didn’t get it right.” Goodell has now stated that in the future N.F.L. employees, including nonplayers, would get suspended for at least six games for their first offense of domestic violence and one year minimum for their second.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
