Ray Rice Cut From The Baltimore Ravens And Suspended From The NFL
Ray Rice has been cut by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL following the disturbing video released of the NFL player attacking his fiancée in an elevator.
“The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of RB Ray Rice this afternoon,” a statement released by the Ravens read.
In a video obtained by TMZ, surveillance video shows Rice hitting Janay Palmer while at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey back in February. In the shocking clip, you see Rice hit Palmer twice before she falls to the ground unconscious.
The NFL initially suspended the 27-year-old for 2 games following the incident, but apparently nobody had seen this particular video until TMZ posted it. “We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator,” NFL senior vice president of communications Greg Aiello told CNN. “That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.”
