VIDEO: Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Rice Faces Heavy Criticism After Footage Shows Him Punching And Knocking Out Fiancee

Ray Rice is facing heavy criticism after a video was leaked showing him punch and knock out his fiancee.

The Baltimore Ravens running back picked up a two-game suspension last season fort the incident, which now looks like the NFL taking a weak stance on domestic violence.

The video was obtained and published by TMZ and shows an argument between Rice and partner Janay Palmer inside the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City.

She appears to strike the face of Rice before entering an elevator, but Rice goes a few steps further when inside the lift:

Amazingly, Palmer and Rice married on March 28 – just a day after a grand jury indicted the player on an aggravated assault charge.

Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, has since announced harsher penalties for domestic abuse, admitting that he failed with the Rice case.
